Governance

How is the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) run?

This section explains our formal governance processes. We have a constitution and an elected steering group which sets the organisation’s strategic direction and our annual meeting is open to all members. The NCJAA is managed by Clinks, an umbrella organisation that supports voluntary and community sector groups working with offenders. This relationship is governed by Terms of Reference (pdf).

Our steering group

The current steering group, chaired by Dr. Alison Frater, was elected in March 2018.

The group meets a minimum of five times a year. Members are expected to join one additional sub-group. Sub-groups focus their work around a specific theme, and commit to additional meetings and consultations.

Our steering group membership include representatives of

Current co-opted members include representatives of

Current advisory members include representatives of

What does the steering group do?

The steering group has a number of roles that include

  • Working with the NCJAA Manager Jessica Plant and Clinks to set priorities, agree the budget, and respond to any changes in government policy in relation to arts and criminal justice.
  • Developing a work plan for the year and members contribute towards guiding this work to ensure it supports arts and criminal justice work effectively.
