The Scottish Government’s vision for community justice is that  

“Scotland is a safer, fairer and more inclusive nation where we:

  • Prevent and reduce further offending by addressing its underlying causes, and
  • Safely and effectively manage and support those who have committed offences to help them reintegrate into the community and realise their potential for the benefit of all citizens.”

National Strategy for Community Justice (2016).

The definition of community justice is:

“The collection of individuals, agencies and services that work together to support, manage and supervise people who have committed offences, from the point of arrest, through prosecution, community disposal or custody and alternatives to these, until they are reintegrated into the community. Local communities and the Third Sector are a vital part of this process which aims to prevent and reduce further offending and the harm that it causes, to promote desistance, social inclusion, and citizenship.”

National Strategy for Community Justice, (2016)
