Reparation

As part of our role to prevent reoffending we try to ensure that all young people we supervise on a Community Order complete some form of Reparation. 

 

This can be Direct Reparation, doing something that directly repairs the harm caused to the victim of their offence, or Indirect Reparation, working to give something back to the local community.

 

It is hoped that whilst working to repair the harm their offending has caused to an individual or to the community, the experience of completing  Reparation activities may also initiate an interest or a skill that could enhance a young person’s future. This may even lead to further training or a work placement.

 

The young person is always consulted by their case worker about the type of activities they can participate in (medical, religious, exclusion zones etc)

All sites and activities we work on are fully risk assessed.

Every effort is made to assess which young people can work together, along with their availability and areas they can safely go to.

 

Young people are written to by their case worker informing them of a date and meeting point for their Reparation activity.

Once at the meeting point the young people will be transported by a BYOS worker to the various sites around the county for the activity to take place.

 

Within the Reparation area on this site, you will see reference to ECM.

ECM stands for Every Child Matters and was the focus of the Department for Children, Schools and Families within ‘The Children’s Plan’. They led work across the Government to ensure that all children and young people

  • Stay healthy and safe  (Are Healthy)
  • Secure an excellent education and the highest possible standards of achievement  (Achieve)
  • Enjoy their childhood (Enjoy)
  • Make a positive contribution to society and the economy (make a positive contribution)
  • Have lives full of opportunity, free from the effects of poverty (Economic wellbeing)
