The objectives underpinning Scottish Government policy have the community at the centre. The national objective of achieving “safer and stronger communities” is expressed in the National Performance Framework in terms of the following National Outcomes:
- We live our lives free from crime disorder and danger
- We have strong resilient and supportive communities where people take responsibility for their own actions and how they affect others
- Our public services are high quality, continually improving, efficient and responsive to local people’s needs
The Scottish Government identifies eight Justice Outcomes and related priorities within the Strategy for Justice, against which progress is to be measured. The ones most relevant to the Criminal Justice Social Work (CJSW) are:
- Reducing re-offending
- Strengthening community engagement and resilience
- Enhancing efficiency
CJSW has implemented a Planning and Performance Improvement Framework to be able to evidence and report progress against these priorities.
The CJSW Strategy Map details the CJSW outcomes and objectives for 2017/20.
Performance will be measured in terms of our strategic objectives and reported via a Balanced Scorecard.
