Community Payback

Putting life back into empty housing stock

The Community Payback Team has been working in partnership with St Ledger Homes in Doncaster to put long term empty properties back into housing stock.

The offenders are given the materials which would normally be given to the prospective new tenants and then use these to decorate the property to a high standard.  The first property the teams completed were viewed eight times and rejected before the work was completed.  The second property also had issues with the state of decoration but when it was completed it was let on the first viewing.

The properties completed as part of this project are allocated to tenants deemed as vulnerable.  This includes OAP bungalows and disabled homes where the new tenant would find it difficult to decorate themselves.

Offenders have worked over 588 hours in the properties and completed two properties.  Without the input of the team many of these properties would still be lying vacant and in a state of disarray.

The team at St Ledger has been impressed with the professional standard of work and the way in which offenders have completed the work.
