Community Justice Partnership
Since securing Scottish Government funding in November 2017, the Stirling Community Justice Partnership has been supporting local people to help find and secure employment. The partnership through offering confidential 1-2-1 support for people with previous or current charges and/or convictions and helps them build confidence, skills, and experience. Support is offered by the partnership to improve access to health and addiction support services and help people identify the next step on their journey to work.
Since the partnership began 114 people have accessed support from services, with 33% progressing into a positive destination of training, volunteering, Further Education or Employment and 46% have received intervention support for housing difficulties, financial worries or substance use which is preventing them from securing or sustaining a job.
One to one appointments are available at Stirling Community Enterprise each week or on Wednesdays at Hillview Community Centre, Cultenhove from 11 am – 2 pm.
Support offered includes; understanding the law in relation to ‘spent’ convictions, creating or updating your CV, skills and quality identification, support with application forms and preparing for interviews.
This project is proudly funded by the Scottish Government’s Employability Innovation and Integration Fund.
