Criminal Justice Social Work services are well aware of the impact repeated offending behaviour has on communities, families and victims. 

Engaging the person who offends in focused interventions to address the issues that increase their risk of further offending is key to community supervision, either as an alternative to a custodial sentence or as part of a post-release Licence.

In East Lothian the team engage with partner agencies to support individual’s to move away from an offending lifestyle and reintegrate into local communities.
