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.
Whilst the Orkney Partnership is responsible for overseeing the redesign arrangements locally, a new national body, Community Justice Scotland, will provide leadership, enhanced opportunities for innovation, learning and development, and assurance on the delivery of improved outcomes.
At the end of March 2017, the Community Justice Authorities were disestablished, and the new arrangements of each local area Partnership came in to full effect on 1st April 2017.
The Orkney Community Justice Partnership currently consists of the following Partners:
Orkney Alcohol Counselling and Advisory Service
