We currently work with around 40 places to offer reparation opportunities for young people, but we would always like to hear more suggestions from members of the public or organisations.
If you have a suggestion, please contact us and tell us about it.
These are some quotes from organisations that offer reparation placements about the benefit that it gives them and the young people:
"Heeley City Farm benefits from the extra pairs of hands that community reparation provides. These youngsters are not born bad, by mixing with other young people that aren’t offenders they are learning to be good citizens”
Manager of Heeley City Farm
“Community Reparation gives young people the chance to make positive improvements to the parks and woodlands of Sheffield whilst learning new skills and building confidence. The contribution they make is valued by local communities and we receive many positive comments about the work carried out.”
“By cleaning off or painting over graffiti as a reparation activity, it soon becomes apparent what a costly and time consuming job it can be. During the 3 years it has been noticeable that where graffiti has been cleaned off by young people, it has stayed off for a considerably longer period of time. We have found their approach to be professional, hard working and achieved good long term results where graffiti has proved an issue.”
Sheffield Street Force
“We don’t always see the work taking place, but certainly notice the difference they make. Both staff and visitors to the cemeteries appreciate the work that is being done.”
