‘Community Payback’ – providing lunch for the local community

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently popped into the Turnaround Café at White Willows Extra Care Scheme to check the progress of a scheme run by the South Yorkshire Probation Trust. The scheme, called ‘community payback’, sees offenders contribute in a positive manner to their local community, and at the Turnaround Café they cook a three course meal for the residents of White Willows.

Dave Turton, Head Chef at the Café, explained to Meg that the scheme gives offenders the opportunity to learn new skills in a supported environment, and provides them with an insight into the world of work. Meg was pleased to hear that although only open since June, the Café is now serving around 800 people per month and is very popular with the residents at White Willows. In fact, Dave was keen to point out the growing camaraderie between the residents and Café workers – stressing the importance for offenders of ‘someone simply being nice to you’ as part of the rehabilitation process.

Meg said:

“The sense of community between the residents and offenders at the Turnaround Café was clear to see. Dave is doing a fantastic job in not only helping offenders reintegrate into the community but also in ensuring they gain valuable skills. The excellent food is testament to the training and hard work undertaken by those on the programme.”

White Willows Turnaround Café is open most days for lunch between 12 – 2pm to any member of the local community.
