Sacro is a Scottish community justice organisation which works to deliver life-changing services that empower people, give hope and protection, and help to build safe communities. Sacro provides a wide range of direct, innovative services in Community Justice, Public Protection, Care and Housing. All our services are designed to help build safe 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 services all across Scotland for individuals who need our support, guidance or monitoring to reduce the risk of further conflict or offending. Sacro has played its part by contributing to reducing reoffending with the figures for recorded crime in Scotland decreasing year-on-year. Sacro’s work has a tangible and far-reaching benefit for the people of Scotland, its communities and society. Although the organisation has changed and evolved over its 50 years, we know that supporting and guiding our service users through positive transformational life changes contributes greatly to a reduction in their conflict and offending.
Scotland will be a place of safety, inclusiveness, and wellbeing for everyone.
Our mission is to deliver life-changing services that empower people, give hope and protection, and help to build safe communities.
