The revised Community Justice Performance Framework (CJPF) and the accompanying Guidance and Technical Notes document have now been published and both of these documents can be found on the Scottish Government website.
Community Justice Performance Framework: Community Justice Performance Framework – gov.scot (www.gov.scot)
Guidance and Technical Notes (supporting document): Community Justice Performance Framework – Guidance and Technical Notes (www.gov.scot)
The Framework is published under S18(4)(a) of the Community Justice (Scotland) Act 2016, and replaces the Community Justice Outcomes, Improvement and Performance Framework (OPIF). Following feedback the name of the document has changed from the OPIF to the CJPF to better reflect the scope of the document.
Community justice partners will use the framework’s nationally determined outcomes and national indicators to support local planning and reporting. The accompanying Guidance and Technical Notes document provides information on how to use the outcomes and indicators in the CJPF.
The CJPF is aligned to the National Strategy for Community Justice, which was revised in 2022.
The Community Justice Improvement Tool has also been published by Community Justice Scotland and is now available. This sets out the local evidence that will supplement the national indicator data . Local evidence will provide further context to the national indicators, and help to drive improvement and better understand performance in relation to the nationally determined outcomes.
