Second Chancers: Does Scotland have smart justice?

This event has been organised by Community Justice Scotland

Is Scotland’s justice system good enough at preventing and reducing offending? Join Kirstie (a ‘Second Chancer’), Karyn McCluskey (Chief Executive, Community Justice Scotland) and Lesley McAra (Chair of Penology, The University of Edinburgh) to discuss and decide.

This event is taking place as part of Community Justice Scotland’s Second Chancers campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness of community justice, an approach which tries to address the underlying causes of offending and fully integrate people with convictions into society.
