Circle’s FABI Teams (SHINE and Women’s Outreach) supported mothers to participate in a focus group facilitated by the Care Inspectorate. The focus group aimed to gather the views and experiences of women who receive the support of services for families. The views shared in this focus group will contribute to the development of a Self Evaluation Model for Community Justice in Scotland. Their views will help inform and influence the creation of an approach that services will use:

–  to measure how well they are performing;

–  to identify strengths and areas to improve upon;

–  for any future inspections of community justice.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the parents who gave their time to provide feedback, as it is their views and experiences that are critical in shaping and influencing service delivery.
