This research report focuses exclusively on digital criminal justice provision delivered in Glasgow by three service providers - Street Cones, Nemo Arts and Sacro (all strategically overseen by GCC). The fieldwork for this report took place over a ten month period (from January to October 2021) and encompasses qualitative contributions from both service providers and service users. These contributions initially allowed researchers to ‘process map’ the different types of digital criminal justice provision being offered by each provider, but importantly, also presented rich and detailed insights into a range of potential impacts or outcomes for service users. This report aims to document the learning from the research in order to inform the shape of future digital criminal justice provision in the city, both during and beyond the pandemic. However, it may help inform justice social work in other local authority areas, who will also have had to adapt their justice service provision in light of pandemic restrictions. It is intended to additionally contribute to enhanced knowledge and understanding about the feasibility and accessibility of digital service provision and the delivery of arts-based orders with justice experienced populations, who are often vulnerable, disadvantaged, or marginalised.
