Safer Justice Sector Charter

We want to secure a safer justice sector for everyone. Working with our senior workplace reps in the sector we’ve developed a Safe Operating Solutions charter. We believe these should be the minimum standards under which staff should be expected to work.

Community wants all providers of justice and custodial services that are awarded through government procurement processes to adhere to the following five standards:

  1. REDUCTION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST STAFF
  2. BETTER PAY AND RECOGNTION
  3. FAIR TRAINING AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT
  4. A MINIMUM STANDARD IN ALL CONTRACTS

Community calls on governments right across the UK to enact these principles by ensuring that all new contracts adhere to the charter and by reviewing all current contracts to ensure they meet these minimum standards. You can view our charter outlining our aims below:
