A Day In The Life

The Community Justice Ayrshire Partnership is made up of so many different organisations and services, who work hard to reduce reoffending and improve outcomes for people caught up in the justice system and the wider community impacted by justice issues.

Our ‘Day in the Life’ series has been a positive step in learning more about the different roles involved in community justice.  It has given us the opportunity to get to know the people behind the badge, in order to better understand what they do and consider how we can all work more closely to support our common goal.

If you would like to share your ‘Day in the Life’ or nominate a colleague or team member within your service (with permission of course) please do get in touch with Claire Gilsenan (

The more we can do to raise awareness and understanding of everyone who plays a part in community justice, the better we can work together and the more positive the outcomes.
