Community projects in Caerphilly County Borough are being asked if they would like help from offenders doing community service.
Each year, offenders carry out 10,000 hours of “Community Payback”.
This can include graffiti removal, litter picking, removal of fly tipping, recycling projects, building maintenance and improvements to community facilities.
The Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership and Gwent Probation Service would like to hear suggestions for a community project that could benefit from Community Payback.
Councillor Lyn Ackerman, cabinet member for the environment, said: “I would encourage anyone that has a suggestion for a community project within Caerphilly County Borough that could benefit from Community Payback to get in touch.”
Offenders taking part in the Community Payback scheme are made to wear high visibility orange jackets with the words “Community Payback” on their back.
