Here’s what our members say

What the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance is doing is just incredible – they are not only a fantastic resource for arts charities, they bring us all together and in doing so make us stronger as a community. I’m not sure we would still be going if it wasn’t for the support we’ve received from this much needed organisation.”

“Being a member of the Alliance keeps us aware of the wider topics, and of the work that’s going on within the sector that we aren’t alerted to.”

“As a member, we receive current and relevant information from the Alliance. Small organisations have almost no time to do this, so this is really helpful.”
