by Sacro ( Child Protection, Legal Representation )
Sacro is a Scottish community justice organisation which works to create safer and more cohesive communities across Scotland. Sacro provides a wide range of services spanning all aspects of the community justice continuum. These range from conflict resolution to prevent disputes escalating, to supporting prisoners on release.
All our services are designed to create safe and cohesive communities by reducing conflict and offending. The organisation works with a broad range of people, including those harmed by crime and those responsible for that harm. As a Scotland-wide voluntary organisation, we are committed to providing services that contribute to positive transformational changes in the lives of our service users. We work independently and collaboratively within Scotland’s communities to provide support, prevent conflict and challenge offending behaviour wherever the need arises.
Our services are based on research evidence, service user feedback, international standards of good practice and a commitment to development and innovation. Since its inception, Sacro has grown and developed new services for young people, bail, intensive supervision of high risk offenders and other priority categories. Sacro currently has almost 400 staff and volunteers, offering over 60 services in 22 locations across Scotland.
Our vision is for a safer Scotland, able to resolve conflict constructively and to deal effectively with offending and its consequences.
Our mission is to be a community-based organisation that will create safe and cohesive communities by reducing conflict and offending.
We are committed to working to the highest ethical standards. These include: integrity; recognising and valuing diversity; promoting equality of opportunity; and probity in the use of public funds. Our practice is guided by the belief that all should be shown respect and be empowered to take personal responsibility, acknowledging their capacity for change. Our key principles are that we acknowledge: •Conflict is most effectively resolved through informal, facilitated resolution which assists those involved to identify their own lasting solutions;
•Offending and its consequences are most effectively dealt with through an emphasis on community disposals and sentencing, other than where there is an overriding need to protect society.
