Clinks is the infrastructure organisation supporting voluntary organisations in the criminal justice system in England and Wales. Our aim is to ensure that organisations and the people they support are informed and engaged in order to transform lives and communities.
In order to realise our vision, Clinks supports, promotes and represents the voluntary sector to ensure it can provide the services people need.
Support: We keep the sector up-to-date through our comprehensive programme of communications, our briefings and events. We support the voluntary sector to address entrenched issues and key challenges, to share solutions and realise opportunities.
Promote: We champion voluntary organisations, highlighting the important role they play in criminal justice system, ensuring this is recognised by policy and decision makers. We provide examples of, and promote, good practice and innovation through communications, events and networks.
Represent: We give voice to the voluntary sector. We influence stakeholders through participating in policy and decision making bodies, building relationships and developing networks with key decision makers. We share voluntary sector intelligence - gathered through our networks and our research - with the government.
