Unpaid Work is managed by Criminal Justice Social Work.
In addition to generic work squads which undertake a range of tasks, there are ‘female only’, ‘short’ (light duties) squads and individual work placements at different organisations and locations across Moray.
Unpaid work orders can be complemented by ‘other activities’. Up to 30% of an unpaid work requirement (or 30 hours, whichever is lower) can consist of activity other than unpaid work. Criminal Justice Social Work will determine the nature and extent (if any) of the ‘other activity’ element.
- Community safety and public protection
- Reduced offending
- Social inclusion to support desistance from offending
- ‘Other activities’ can include training and coaching which may lead to improved employment prospects
