Job Role

Our approach to Community Payback (CP) is to make it engaging for service users so it improves their work ethic and makes them more receptive to learning new skills that will increase their chances of getting work. People sentenced to unpaid work are half as likely to reoffend as those sentenced to a short prison sentence.
