Direct discrimination occurs when a person is treated less favourably or more favourably than others would be, on grounds that are not justifiable, such as race, gender, disability or another status.

In the Humberside area, over 160,000 hours of community, payback is completed every year by offenders on a community sentence. This equates to approximately £800,000 of free labour provided to local communities as offenders pay back for the crimes they have committed.
Community payback projects range from litter removal to clearing dense undergrowth, and environmental projects through repairing and redecorating community centres or removing graffiti. Offenders usually work as part of a team, monitored by a supervisor, and will work all day with short breaks, although there are some opportunities for individual placements.
