Criminal justice social work services aim to reduce reoffending, increase social inclusion of offenders and ex-offenders and enhance public protection. Scottish local authorities have a legal duty to provide criminal justice social work services.
Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership is the main provider of criminal justice social work services in the city. We work in partnership with other statutory and voluntary agencies to provide these services.
Contact with Criminal Justice Social Work Services is normally as a result of report requests, court orders or supervision following release from prison.
The sections below have more information about the services and support that we provide.
