The new model for Community Justice in Scotland, in place from 1st April 2017, has been designed to bring together individuals and organisations to deliver a community solution to achieving improved outcomes for community justice, to prevent and reduce further offending and to support desistance, including supervision where necessary.
This plan sets out Clackmannanshire’s Community Justice Improvement Plan for 2017/18. This plan has been developed in line with the National Strategy for Community Justice and Guidance for Local Partners in the New Model for Community Justice.
It was prepared in partnership with a wide range of partners and stakeholders and brings together our collective focus for improvement over the next year and beyond 2018.
The plan has been created from a sound understanding of the key issues in Clackmannanshire and how partners can contribute to improving outcomes locally. This basis of understanding has been informed by a Strategic Assessment and Offending Profile, baseline assessment of current work and a needs assessment to inform priorities going forward.
Our approach in Clackmannanshire has been collaborative with engagement of partners and stakeholders central throughout the process.
This annual plan has been developed to enable strategic alignment with Community Planning and the development of the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan and Locality Plans in Clackmannanshire as well as ongoing implementation of other key areas of the new Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.
