3rd Sector Community Justice Forum

Inverclyde’s new 3rd Sector Community Justice Forum is a subgroup of the local Community Justice Partnership. As the local TSI, CVS Inverclyde is helping to establish this Forum. The 3SCJF offers an opportunity to share national policy and best-practice with and among local 3rd sector organisations who support people involved with the justice system. Because these individuals can also engage with children and families, drug and alcohol recover services, mental health supports and more, 3SCJF welcomes membership from a wide variety of 3rd sector providers. Our aim is to build a holistic system around these individuals and their families and to promote the ethos of community justice.
