The CGM CRC have number of Community Payback schemes through Cheshire and Greater Manchester which do some excellent work which not only benefits the community but also empowers the individuals subject to a Community Order as it can give them something to be proud of in their community and also help feel apart of their community.
Magistrates or judges can sentence offenders to carry out anything from 40 to 300 hours of Community Payback as part of their order. Offenders must do a minimum of a day’s work – lasting at least seven hours – once a week.
Offenders can also be sentenced to intensive Community Payback orders, which mean they must complete 28 hours of work every week.
Across Cheshire and Greater Manchester, offenders complete roughly half a million hours of Community Payback every year – Cheshire and Greater Manchester Community Rehabilitation Company
From February to May 2015, 1174 offenders completed their unpaid work requirement.
I think it is great that we have a link with the CGM CRC (Probation) which will help re-intergrate people back in to the community and also help develop skills.
