Community Payback Order Unpaid Work

Last updated: 28th June 2024


Where the order contains an unpaid work or other activity requirement an individual must undertake unpaid work for a specified number of hours in the community. This should have a focus on reparation and providing a clear tangible benefit to the local community. It may also include requiring the individual to take responsibility for their own behaviour by spending time, through the “other activity” component of the requirement, on developing their interpersonal, educational, and vocational skills to support long-term desistance from offending.

Further Information:

Personal placements may be offered to suitable low risk service users who would benefit from charity type placement opportunities which may lead them to volunteering or employment at a later time. Employability Mentors are available to support service users into training, volunteering, and employment (other activity).
