In his lecture, Lord Carloway will examine what features the court should look at when sentencing offenders apart from punishment and deterrance. It will consider the issues including the weight to be attached to the rehabilitation of the offender, the effect of the sentence on the offender’s family and the protection of the public.
Lecture will be chaired by Lord Cullen of Whitekirk KT, Honorary President, Sacro.
The lecture begins at 6:30pm and is followed by a reception at 7:30.
Admission is free and guests are asked to arrive in good time.
When & Where
Sacro is a Scottish community justice organisation which works to create safer and more cohesive communities across Scotland. From providing conflict resolution that prevents disputes from escalating to supporting prisoners on release, Sacro works to reduce conflict and repair harm. All our services are designed to create safe and cohesive communities by reducing conflict and offending.
The organisation works with a broad range of people, including those harmed by crime and those responsible for that harm. As a Scotland-wide voluntary organisation, we are committed to providing services that contribute to positive transformational changes in the lives of our service users. We work independently and collaboratively within Scotland’s communities to provide support, prevent conflict and challenge offending behaviour wherever the need arises. Our services are based on research evidence, service user feedback, international standards of good practice and a commitment to development and innovation. Since its inception, Sacro has grown and developed new services for young people, bail, intensive supervision of high risk offenders and other priority categories. Sacro currently has almost 400 staff and volunteers, offering over 60 services in 22 locations across Scotland.
