Perth and Kinross Community Justice Partnership

The Community Justice Partnership is committed to working with local people to prevent and reduce offending and to support those who have committed offences to integrate into their local community.

For example, where people have been sentenced to a community order with unpaid work, the Partnership looks at new and innovative ways of making sure communities fully benefit from these orders.

For people who are released from prison, the Partnership works with the local community to make sure proper support is in place to help reduce the risk of people committing further offences.

The Community Justice Partnership is made up of 8 statutory partners and one non-statutory partner. These are:

  • Police Scotland
  • NHS Tayside
  • Perth & Kinross Integration Joint Board
  • Perth & Kinross Council
  • Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service
  • Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
  • Scottish Prison Service
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Perth & Kinross Third Sector Forum

The Partnership has created an ambitious icon Community Justice Outcomes Improvement Plan [576Kb] to ensure it achieves its goals.

In preparing the Plan the Partnership carried out a number of engagement activities which were attended by a wide range stakeholders including statutory and non-statutory partners, victims and witnesses of crime, people with lived experience of the justice system and their families, elected members and the wider community. Details of the engagement activities that took place to inform preparation of the Outcomes Improvement Plan are contained in the icon Community Justice Participation Statement [333Kb].

Each year, the Partnership produces an Annual Report. The Annual Report details progress made by the Partnership in achieving the outcomes specified in the Partnership plan. The Annual Reports can be accessed using the links below:
