Your Chance to Deliver Verdict on Community Justice Work

Friday 6 July 2018

People in Inverclyde are being given the chance to have their say on the work being done to reduce re-offending.

Community Justice - Police



The Inverclyde Community Justice Partnership has produced its first draft annual report outlining what has been achieved over the past year.

Inverclyde Council Leader and Chair of the Inverclyde Alliance Councillor Stephen McCabe said: “Everyone involved in community justice have been working together to make a difference in people’s lives and to strengthen our communities.

“There have been some notable achievements both in securing funding to develop more and different services as well as ensuring the voices of people who are involved in criminal justice – witnesses, victims, and families – are heard.

“This consultation is an opportunity for everyone in Inverclyde to have their say on what has been done so far. Is it enough or are there improvements or other measures that could be taken?

“It is important that we review and improve our plans and reflect and take stock on what has been achieved so far.”

The Inverclyde Community Justice Partnership was established on 1st April 2017 as part of the local implementation of the Community Justice (Scotland) Act 2016.

Community justice aims to prevent and reduce further offending and to support people to live positive lives in their local community.
