Community Payback Order Supervision

Last updated: 27th June 2024


Where the order contains an offender supervision requirement, an individual must attend appointments as specified by justice social work for the purposes of promoting rehabilitation.

Further Information:

An action plan is developed for all individuals sentenced to a supervision requirement as part of a Community Payback Order (CPO). The areas that will be addressed during the order will be outlined in an action plan informed by the Level of Service Case Management Inventory (LSCMI) assessment, which assesses individual risks and needs. South Lanarkshire has developed a Structured Supervision Programme (SSP), which is a modular programme that focuses on elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The modules support the individual to explore a range of areas that can aid their awareness and explore ways to access appropriate supports to reduce the risk of further offending behaviour and to address any unmet welfare needs, whilst reducing areas of risk. Interventions can include working to secure appropriate accommodation, employability supports, maximising income/managing debt or to access appropriate local supports and services, including health and recovery services.
