Our vision and mission

Our vision is a criminal justice system that delivers fair outcomes for all. Our purpose is to help those involved in the development and delivery of criminal justice practice and policy to create a system free from unfair outcomes for Black and Minority Ethnic people.

Our aim

To address the poorer outcomes experienced by BAME groups and Muslims in the criminal justice system.
