Community Justice Scotland - Annual Report 2017/18

The first Community Justice Scotland Annual Report on community justice outcome activity across Scotland during 2017/18 has been released. The report considers progress by local areas against the national community justice outcomes, and provides recommendations that will drive continuous improvement.

Community Justice Scotland and local Community Justice Partnerships are at the beginning of what must be a seismic shift in how the justice system operates in Scotland. This requires a sustained, collaborative and evidence-based approach to reducing stigma, understanding need, and developing opportunities for those who wish to lead a life free from offending; as citizens in a safer and fairer Scotland.

This report demonstrates the breadth of activity undertaken by local areas. Whilst outcomes are ambitious and long-term, there is already progress evident across practice, process and delivery. Forming, fostering and maintaining relationships is crucial to success and must underpin every interaction in the justice system. It is refreshing to find such a key theme threaded throughout this report.
