Justice for all - Putting Communities at the centre of Community Justice

Community Justice partners in Aberdeen are working to improve outcomes for people involved in the Justice System, their families and communities. In order to inform this work, we want to find out your priorities, views and experiences and to learn from them.  We also want to help communities better understand how the system and services work, to enable you to support this work and make our communities safer and stronger places to live, work and play. 

The aim is to empower our communities and to provide people with the information needed to actively participate in Community Justice.

This consultation will be open from 4th February 2019. It is aimed at citizens of Aberdeen, particularly those who have been affected by crime.

Why your views matter

Community is at the heart of the new model for community justice and improving outcomes will require the support of local people. People across Scotland demonstrate a mixed understanding of community justice when asked what this achieves for society and members of the public.

Informing local communities about community justice issues and involving them in the decisions that affect them will support reintegration, reduce stigma, and lead to the delivery of better, more responsive services and improved community justice outcomes.

What happens next

The results of this survey will be used to design our next steps in engaging with communities.
