FFV CJA Area Plan 2014-17

FFV CJA Board recently approved our Area Plan for 2014-17. This Area Plan details our priorities for the next three years. These priorites were identified through consultation with our partners and are: 

  • Transition Planning
  • Prolific Offenders
  • Vulnerable People
  • Access to Universal Services
  • Evidencing Outcomes

As well as being approved by our Board, our Area Plan was discussed in front of a Scrutiny Panel comprising representatives from Scottish Government, SPS, COSLA and ADSW. Andy Bruce, Head of the Community Justice Division in the Scottish Government and chair of the scrutiny panel, said that our Area Plan was strong with our strengths including our committment to agreeing our key local priorities with local partners and our action planning across the CJA area.

Over the next three years we will continue to work with our partners to deliver against these priorities through our Action Plan. We acknowledge that much of this work will involve preparing our partners for the transition of Community Justice to our four local authorities Community Planning Partnerships.

Both our Action Plan and Area Plan can be found in our Publications section.
