On Thursday 23rd March 2017, South West Scotland Community Justice Authority, in partnership with the three Ayrshire Community Planning Partnerships, hosted an event at John Pollock Centre, Mainholm Road, Ayr. ‘Take a Walk in my Shoes’ is a unique experiential event which invited delegates to experience the journey of a person going through the Criminal Justice System.
This provided an opportunity for over 100 persons to participate in an immersive experience of the criminal justice system from the point of arrest to point of liberation from prison.
The journey included different stages from Police, court, prison, social work, community payback, Throughcare and liberation and provided an insight into what it looks and feels like to be going through the justice system.
