Published by Clinks:

Covid-19 has had an unprecedented impact on societies and communities across the world, significantly affecting the way we interact, work and live. This impact of the pandemic has been felt profoundly by people in the criminal justice system – many of whom have faced even tighter restrictions for a more prolonged time than in wider society – their families and the voluntary sector working to support them.

During the pandemic, Clinks has been collecting information about how voluntary organisations working in the criminal justice system in England and Wales have been faring.

This report explores how the pandemic has impacted four key areas:

  • The services being delivered
  • People in the criminal justice system
  • Staff and volunteers
  • Funding and financial sustainability.
