Co-producing Positive Futures – Learning event

Scottish Co-production Network – Learning Event
Wednesday 28th October, 9.30 – 12.30
IET Teacher Building, Glasgow

This free SCN learning event will be a chance to come together and learn about how co-productive approaches are becoming part of Scotland’s justice system. The morning will offer a chance for group discussion around these issues, with inputs from three organisations with direct experience of this type of work.

We will hear contributions from:

Outside the Box

Outside the box logoOutside the Box is a social enterprise which has worked with women and staff at Tomorrow’s Women Glasgow, a multi-agency centre which works with women with complex needs who are involved in the Criminal Justice system. 

In this session they will share how service user involvement for the women who receive these services was developed, along with the good ideas and effective practice they have learned, and continue to learn, from working with vulnerable women.

Positive Prisons, Positive Futures

Positive Prisons logoPositive Prisons, Positive Futures has been working to improve the effectiveness of Scotland’s criminal justice system by using the direct personal experience of people who are or have been subject to punishment.

This contribution will look at this process and how these voices of lived experience have been heard around the redesign of Community Justice, the implementation of Independent Monitoring of Prisons and changes in the language used in justice.

Space Unlimited

space-unlimited-250.jpgSpace Unlimited is a small social enterprise which has worked with the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice on a project to engage young people with lived experience of these services, defining a new voice and role for themselves around shaping future research, practice and policy.

This input will focus on the challenges and benefits of a more collaborative approach to working with young people in this sector and how they’re trying to carry the work forward on a quest to help shape best practice across Scotland.
