Community Payback

Community Payback

Community Payback is a punishment handed out by the courts. Under the scheme courts can sentence offenders of certain crimes to undertake between 40 and 300 hours of work for the community.

It's demanding, unpaid work carried out by offenders in the community, and is a national scheme delivered locally by South Yorkshire CRC.

In South Yorkshire alone more 192,000 hours of Community Payback were completed last year by offenders on a community sentence. This equates to more than £1.2 million of free labour provided to local communities by offenders paying back for the crimes they have committed.

Offenders have to wear orange high-visibility jackets, marked Community Payback, so you can see that they're paying back to your community for their crimes.

Community Payback projects range from the upgrading of local community areas to clearing dense undergrowth, and environmental projects through repairing and redecorating community centres or removing graffiti.

You can nominate a local project which you wish to see benefit from Community Payback
