The Criminal Justice Voluntary Sector Forum (CJVSF) is a collaboration of voluntary sector organisations working in criminal justice in Scotland.  A list of our current members can be found here.  We warmly welcome new members.  If you are a voluntary sector service provider working within criminal justice in Scotland and would be interested in joining the CJVSF, please get in touch.

CJVSF is hosted by Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland and currently receives funding from the Scottish Government.  

CJVSF seeks to:

  • Support voluntary sector providers to continuously improve their own criminal justice services through collaboration and sharing of good practice
  • Assist voluntary sector providers to understand, navigate and influence the complex and changing environment in which they operate – including, where appropriate, challenging specific policies or decisions that adversely affect them –  through gathering relevant evidence (including evidence relating to unmet need), providing information, facilitating discussions, responding to consultations and contributing to relevant working groups
  • Promote broader awareness of the activities, value and contribution of third sector services within criminal justice through consultation responses, briefings and attendance at relevant events
