No Offence! Promoting Integration conference

 

7th November 2012

HMP Barlinnie, 81 Lee Avenue, Glasgow G33 2QX


The conference will cover the important aspects of resettling back into the community with a focus on interventions for those serving sentences less than 4 years in the Scottish Prison System. A significant proportion of the prison population are released without any statutory supervision - herein lies the reason for the conference.This conference will focus on the specific issues and organisations who make up the criminal justice sector in Scotland. As with any of our conferences, this will include a cross sector approach to hands on local services and will focus on a ‘bottom up’ approach with practitioners and successful delivery agencies leading the way, backed up very ably by our colleagues in academia. Our aim is simple, to showcase good practice and innovation from organisations that work successfully with this cohort.

Aims & objectives

This conference will focus on the specific issues and organisations who make up the criminal justice sector in Scotland. As with any of our conferences, this will include a cross sector approach to hands on local services and will focus on a ‘bottom up’ approach with practitioners and successful delivery agencies leading the way, backed up very ably by our colleagues in academia.
 
Key speakers from various professional backgrounds will deliver presentations explaining the importance of integrated working and the nature of tailored support that is necessary for ex-offenders to remain crime free and reduce recidivism.
 
Frontline organisations will deliver solution-focused breakout sessions highlighting good practice, using innovative and creative solutions with alternative approaches.
 
Delegates from all sectors across criminal justice will benefit by coming together to share this significant experience in as we attempt to identify the extent of the issue whilst also focusing on solutions.

 

 

Benefits of attending

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Engage with experienced senior representatives working directly with offenders.
  • Hear from organisations showcasing examples of solution-focused, ‘good practice’.
  • Learn from experts providing high-calibre support to offenders in the community.

 
No Offence! is about building partnerships across the Criminal Justice Sector. These partnerships will maximise the benefits of combined expertise, and working in collaboration will produce innovative and effective responses to problems that are tough to tackle individually. The serious issues addressed at the conference will give delegates the opportunity to debate and explore future ways of working more effectively, and with budgets as tight as ever this will become increasingly more important. Our conferences see networking at its very best with new business being achieved on the day, so don’t miss out, use this day to meet experts and colleagues with the same overarching desire to make a difference.
 
We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
