Social Impact Pledge logo

Community Justice Scotland pledges to:

Challenge ourselves to increase the positive impact we make on our local community and make better use of our assets – our buildings/grounds and our people.

In the next six months we will do at least three things that we don’t do at the moment to improve our social impact.                                                                                                        

Signed,  Signature of Chief Executive Karyn McCluskey, Chief Executive, February 2018.                                                                                                                                                                     

1st Commitment


To volunteer with Barnardo’s based at HMP Edinburgh to assist with family visiting time. Volunteers work as Play Workers doing Arts and Crafts with the children that are visiting HMP Edinburgh. By volunteering for Barnardo’s we can increase the positive impact for the children visiting their parents.

There is a regular commitment required involving volunteering 2.5hrs on Sundays and take part in 2.5 days training.


Geographical location of impact
