The Community Justice Partnership is committed to working with local people to prevent and reduce offending and to support those who have committed offences to integrate into their local community.
For example, where people have been sentenced to a community order with unpaid work, the Partnership looks at new and innovative ways of making sure communities fully benefit from these orders.
For people who are released from prison, the Partnership works with the local community to make sure proper support is in place to help reduce the risk of people committing further offences.
The Community Justice Partnership is made up of 8 statutory partners and one non-statutory partner. These are:
- Police Scotland
- NHS Tayside
- Perth & Kinross Integration Joint Board
- Perth & Kinross Council
- Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service
- Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
- Scottish Prison Service
- Skills Development Scotland
- Perth & Kinross Third Sector Forum
The Partnership has created an ambitious Community Justice Outcomes Improvement Plan to ensure it achieves its goals.
In preparing the Plan the Partnership carried out a number of engagement activities which were attended by a wide range stakeholders including statutory and non-statutory partners, victims and witnesses of crime, people with lived experience of the justice system and their families, elected members and the wider community. Details of the engagement activities that took place to inform preparation of the Outcomes Improvement Plan are contained in the Community Justice Participation Statement [333Kb].
