For many years there has been a growing recognition from local authority agencies, partnerships, the Police and the Prison and Probation Services of the importance of the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) and the range of services they can provide in the Criminal Justice System (CJS). VONNE, in partnership with Clinks, has developed a criminal justice network for voluntary sector organisations in the North East of England.

The Local Development Officer for the North East, Natalie Maidment, has been seconded from VONNE to Clinks to work with the VCS, supporting it’s work to reduce crime, promote community safety, and reduce re-offending.
