Renfrewshire Council

Community Justice

What is Community Justice?

Community justice is protecting the community.

As well as delivering justice for the victims of offending and about making our communities feel safer, it's about working with people with convictions to give them the support and help they need to reduce the risk of re-offending.

What are we trying to achieve?

By working together to support victims and families affected by crime, and supporting, managing and supervising people who have committed offences, we hope to encourage rehabilitation and reintegration back into the community.

How are we making this happen?

A robust partnership approach is in place to ensure the most effective support system is in place for victims, families and those who have committed offences.

A full list of the partners involved can be found in the related links section of this page.

How will we know it's working?

We will review our plan each year; so that we can measure success, ensure that the priorities are still the right ones for Renfrewshire.

This is our opportunity to create a better community for Renfrewshire.
