Aim/Purpose:

Passport CashBack is a National Service providing support for young people in custody prior to liberation, and on a community outreach basis, that increases their employability skills. We work in partnership to ensure young people leaving custody have access to the appropriate support. We support young people being liberated into further education, training and employability. We also offer support to young people serving community sentences and diversion. In community outreach, we will work with young people in order to achieve an action plan that reflects their interests and goals. Caseworkers will encourage the uptake of other appropriate activity and designated services to best ensure the widest support. The Caseworker can arrange and deliver skills training; make links with employers; encourage employer involvement; and help individuals access opportunities and manage disclosure of convictions.
