doing unpaid work differently
Community Payback is a sentence made by the courts. Sentences vary between 40 and 300 hours of 'Unpaid Work', with participants working at least 7 hours a week to finish the requirement within 12 months. As well as making amends to the community, the work may also help participants to learn new skills and get on better with those around them.
That's where we come in
Through a partnership we call 'Doing Unpaid Work Differently', our Advance Programme and a selection of independent learning opportunities are available to people completing their Unpaid work Requirement with Durham Tees Valley Rehabilitation Company (DTV CRC).
“We’ve found that participants who are out of work, really benefit from the programme. They see it as a real opportunity to turn things around and give themselves a new focus. Functioning well in a real work experience role not only gives them the confidence boost they are seeking but it also enables them to explore different sectors and discover they can apply their skills in ways they had never considered - opening new possibilities.”
