Government scheme that provides punishment and reparation by requiring offenders to work on projects which are of benefit to their local community.
Community Payback is essentially the replacement for Community Service, also more recently called Community Punishment. Courts are given the power to sentence offenders of certain crimes to undertake between 40 and 300 hours of Community Payback. This work is unpaid and demanding work that is aimed at giving something to local communities and forcing offenders to repay the community for the wrong they have done.
You can nominate a local project or vote for the project that you wish to see benefit from unpaid labour.
