Orkney Community Justice Partnership

The Community Justice Partnership is a newly established Partnership in Orkney, responsible for the local planning and delivery of Community Justice. Legislation has recently been introduced, transferring this responsibility from the existing eight regional Community Justice Authorities, to 32 local area Community Justice Partnerships across Scotland. The redesign in which Community Justice services are provided allows delivery, partnership, co-ordination and collaboration to remain at the heart  of Community Justice planning at a local level.

The Orkney Community Justice Partnership aims to promote effective engagement and participation to help communities achieve greater control and influence in the decisions and circumstances that affect their lives, as per the The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.

The Community Justice Partnership has produced a Community Justice Outcomes Improvement Plan for 2017 - 2018.  As part of this plan, we have consulted and engaged with a number of partners and stakeholders. Click here to view this Participation Statement.
