We examined three locally-run projects whose aim is to make the Criminal Justice System more efficient and effective:
- In Kent, a project to improve the way that they prepare for Crown Court trials.
- In Northumbria, a partnership with the third sector to support Black and Minority Ethnic women who have experienced domestic abuse, honour-based violence and forced marriage.
- In Warwickshire, the creation of a ‘one-stop shop’ Justice Centre.
The report is structured according to 12 widely-accepted principles for running a successful project. It then draws out, under each principle, specific examples of good practice emerging from the projects that we examined.
