What makes for the best support for people leaving prison? Join one of these short workshops to help shape the future of voluntary throughcare in Scotland.

Community Justice Scotland is collaborating with Scottish Government to review throughcare and mentoring services across Scotland for people who are leaving prison after serving short term sentences of up to four years.

The purpose of this review is to understand what good looks like in the provision of voluntary throughcare and mentoring services in Scotland and set up a commissioning approach and service design that will create the conditions for a consistent, effective, high quality, national response for people leaving prison.

Facilitated by Iriss, these half-day workshops aim to bring together those with an interest in developing the best possible support for people leaving prison to:

— Develop and discuss new ideas and approaches to voluntary throughcare and the wider system

— Contribute to, and shape the CJS/SG review
