Practice Guide for support staff – People with Communication Support Needs in the Scottish Criminal Justice System

Practice guide for support staff working with people in criminal justice system Published 2019

Our Practice Guide was produced by the Supporting Offenders with Learning Disabilities (SOLD) network in collaboration with our justice partners. It aims to help support workers from all sectors who find the person with learning disabilities they support, in the criminal justice system.

It provides information about how Support Workers can make a well-informed, constructive contribution, which is valued not just by the person they support, but also by partner professionals in the criminal justice system.
