CJFS Network Good Practice Guidance

The Criminal Justice Family Support Network is a forum of local and national voluntary sector organisations providing support to families affected by imprisonment throughout Scotland, as all or part of their remit. Services from group members include financial advice, counselling, addiction services, and family support. Facilitated by Families Outside, the Network aims to share practice and raise awareness across the voluntary and statutory sectors of what support is available where, consequently enabling members to refer families to the most appropriate support in their area and, importantly, to identify gaps in support.

The Network has produced this Good Practice Guidance with the aim of ensuring organisations and individuals who come into contact with these families, in or out of the criminal justice sector, are best informed and engaged to provide better support for families affected by imprisonment.
