Strategy

Sacro has changed over its 50 years.

We work with many different people in very different situations. We have a huge breadth and diversity of services across criminal justice, community justice, social justice, and social care. Sacro is people. We work with people, in whatever setting or whatever their need is. This makes it hard to define us exactly, because the needs of people change, and we aim to meet them with life-changing services.

People are at the centre of our strategy. This means the people we work with and the people who work for us.

We are going to keep doing the things that we do best, and we are trusted for.

We are going to talk about this more so that there is a better understanding of the breadth of work that we do. You will see all the great work that our teams are involved in reflected in the breadth of our strategy, from justice and community services to public protection and community safety, to housing support and care in communities.

We are going to support communities.

We will lead nationally on these areas of work and build our voice and expertise but deliver very locally. We will bring our learning, experience, and skills to bear for the whole of Scotland. We will be focused on the best practice and skills that we can offer and working closely with local partners to deliver the best possible services.

Our leaders will ensure that we can offer our partners high levels of practitioner understanding and networks and expertise in the areas that are needed. We want to offer our expertise to the sector and to Scottish Government, to support the development of innovation and best practice.

We are determined to keep making a lasting difference.

So, we have set out our four goals and the outcomes that we expect to see from working towards them. This will guide us for the next five years.
