Connecting for change.

The Criminal Justice Alliance is a network of 160 organisations working towards a fair and effective criminal justice system.

Our membership includes charities, social enterprises, think tanks, research institutions and staff associationsThey work right across the criminal justice system, in areas such as prevention, policing, courts, prisons, probation and victim services. 

We draw on the expertise and experiences of our members, as well as carrying out our own research and studying the latest established evidence, to map the route to a criminal justice system which is safe, smart, person-centred, restorative and trusted.
