Keeping you informed

"Clinks makes us feel an important contributor to the Criminal Justice System. We feel better informed when engaging with NOMS and policy makers."

Respondent, Clinks Impact Assessment

We are a membership organisation with over 600 members including the voluntary sector’s largest providers as well as its smallest, and our wider national network reaches 4,000 voluntary sector contacts. Overall, through our weekly e-bulletin Light Lunch and our social media activity, we have a network of over 15,000 contacts, which include individuals and agencies with an interest in the CJS and the role of the voluntary sector in the resettlement and rehabilitation of offenders

Our key communications tools include:

  • Clinks Light Lunch – popular weekly ebulletin of news, resources and opportunities for the Sector and those that work within it
  • Briefings – concise and informative briefings responding to recent policy changes and developments in the CJS. These aim to keep our members informed in a timely and efficient manner.
  • Reports - on key themes and issues arising in the CJS
  • Directory of Offender Services - find out who’s providing what services where
