Our Let’s Talk series was designed to help people understand the importance of community justice and reducing reoffending and to raise awareness of organisations and services working to create better outcomes for people caught up in the justice system.
We wanted people to understand the role these organisations and services have in community justice and showcase how they contribute to reducing reoffending and work to create better outcomes for people caught up in the justice system and the wider community who are who are impacted by justice issues.
If your organisation or service would like to take part, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with Claire Gilsenan (CGilsenan@north-ayrshire.gov.uk).
The more we can do to raise awareness and understanding of organisations and services who play a part in community justice, the better we can work together and the more positive the outcomes.
