Managing small individual budgets in criminal justice settings

Thursday 22nd June 2017 from 9.30am to 12.30pm at Scottish Youth Theatre, Glasgow

The third learning network event will focus on the initial findings of our pilot study which provides small one off payments to individuals involved with criminal justice services. Although our pilot study is not self directed support in the strictest sense (i.e. none of our participants are currently in receipt of SDS funding), our aim is to investigate and illustrate how small sums of money might increase individuals choice and control over their lives with a view to making a positive impact on their offending behaviour. For example, how did the process work? What kind of things did individuals want? What did we learn? What would we change the next time?

We have worked in partnership with a number of third and public sector criminal justice organisations including SACRO, Crossreach, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Prison Service. In addition, our participant workshop sessions were facilitated by Diversity Matters at www.diversity-matters.co.uk
