The Criminal Justice Alliance advocates for sensible changes to make the criminal justice system work better. Our insight comes from our members: over 200 non-profit organisations with expertise across the whole criminal justice system. Their broad remits enable us to piece together the right formula for lasting change.
Our vision is of a fair and effective criminal justice system that works well for everyone and leads to a more equitable society.
Investigating key issues and influencing policy. We gather the experiences, ideas and good practice of members, as well as carrying out our own research and investigation into key issues in criminal justice. We promote our findings through co-produced, evidence-led briefings for policy makers and commissioners, showing them how they can create a fair and effective criminal justice system. We show what is working and what isn’t working, and make recommendations for systemic change.
Making connections. We bring together practitioners, researchers, people with lived experience and policy makers from across the criminal justice system, so they can share learning, break down silos and identify opportunities for collaboration.
Keeping people informed. The criminal justice system is vast and complex. Through our newsletters, social media, blogs and events, we keep members informed and up to date with fast-moving changes in policy and practice. We highlight success stories and good practice, as well as potentially damaging reforms, and promote ways for members to get involved in influencing policy.
