Timeline :: Criminal Justice Social Work Development Centre for Scotland set up

Silhouette for no photo

The centre, funded by the Scottish Executive, was set up with three aims:

  1. to establish and maintain a networked system of information and research;
  2. to disseminate information on effective intervention;
  3. to promote and evaluate models of effective intervention.

The MSc in Advanced Social Work was incorprated within the responsibility of the cetnre in 2004. Around the same time, Scottish government made a substantial additional investment in youth justice development in Scotland through the work of the centre.

The university chose to withdraw from delivery of the centre in March 2013; the youth justice responsibilities were subsequently relocated at the University of Strathclyde.

Although some of the centre's work will have been superceded over time, we plan to re-visit some of the work of the centre in the Research section of this website.
