The Criminal Justice Voluntary Sector Forum
The Criminal Justice Voluntary Sector Forum (CJVSF) is a collaboration of voluntary sector organisations working in criminal justice in Scotland.
June 13, 2022CJVSF has been working with Community Justice Scotland to explore the impact Covid-19 had, and continues to have, on voluntary sector organisations working in justice.
Our role involves working with relevant partners and stakeholders to help them engage with third sector organisations directly, responding to consultations and calls for evidence and participating in relevant meetings and working groups.
“The third sector plays an important role in improving community justice outcomes. They are a source of innovation, responsiveness and flexibility, and can provide a meaningful connection to otherwise hard-to-reach service users and communities.” (National Strategy for Community Justice)
Third sector organisations deliver a range of support and services in prisons as well as to people in the community before they enter and after they return from prison.
