Offenders Give Back To The Community

The DCPT (Devon and Cornwall Probation Trust) is just one of the groups working closely with offenders.

One of the projects involves participants voluntarily removing graffiti with the use of a specially designed machine. Volunteers receive full training to the equipment and receive qualifications in health and safety which will help them to find jobs.

It is hoped that through this scheme offenders will see just how time consuming and expensive graffiti removal can be, therefore deterring them from doing it again. 

Jacqui Felix- Mitchell from the DCPT talks about how this scheme came about:
