Public Policy

One of the objectives of LandWorks is to use the experience of operating the charity, and in particular the experience of our trainees and graduates, to inform public policy with the aim of improving the criminal justice system.

To do this we publish key documents including our evaluation reports, take part in academic forums, issue briefings to politicians and other key influencers and invite them to visit LandWorks to learn from our experience, and we participate in formal policy consultations and inquiries. We also support specific campaigns organised by the criminal justice charity sector including through our social media.
