Health and Justice

The Health and Justice Thematic Group has been formed to strengthen links between health and justice agencies to promote joint improvements in service delivery and to provide a platform for partners to work together on the many cross cutting issues that relate to health and justice.

The remit of the group includes providing a collaborative, multi-disciplinary forum to:

  • Share good practice and research;
  • Identify opportunities for joint work and inter-agency collaboration;
  • Link with Third Sector agencies;
  • Share resources and skills.

The group high level aims are:

  • Work collaboratively to reduce offending and reoffending
  • Provide opportunities to divert people from the formal justice system
  • Reduce health inequalities
  • Improve health and wellbeing for people involved in the justice system
