Community Payback and the new National Standards for Criminal Justice Social Work

Published: November 2010

This briefing paper begins by tracing the development of the Community Payback Order in Scotland, paying particular attention to how the concept has been defined and conceptualised. The paper offers an interpretation of how Community Payback can, and even should, be understood, and then explores some of the challenges around delivering this vision of Community Payback.
