Driving systemic change together

The Criminal Justice Alliance is a network of 180 organisations working towards a fair and effective criminal justice system.

We advocate for sensible changes to make the criminal justice system work better. Our insight comes from our members: over 180 non-profit organisations with expertise across the whole criminal justice system. Their broad remits enable us to piece together the right formula for lasting change.

Our drive comes from the recognition that a fairer and more effective system will help communities across England and Wales, with positive effects that can be felt far beyond crime and justice.
