What is Collaborative Social Justice?
We believe in widening access to quality and early interventions that address root causes. Our aim at JustRight Scotland is to understand the wider issues and barriers at play and to achieve maximum impact by working to address these through strategic legal interventions and our research and policy remit. We believe in evaluating what we do and sharing that information in order to build an evidence base and collaborative blueprints to support change at a broader level and improve the capability of civil society as a whole.
However, in the current political, social and economic contexts we now live in, successful outcomes cannot be attained without working with others to achieve common goals. We need to be diverse and able to adapt to change and do so in a way that uses all resources available to us.
JustRight Scotland Collaborations
At JustRight Scotland, we therefore don’t believe that the law by itself is the answer to improving access to justice, equality and rights. Instead, we believe in the power of teams and collaborations; we need to work with others in order to better harness our combined financial, human and social capital. That is why we will develop projects that will:-
- Respond to an identifiable and specific gap within the social justice, rights and equality landscape within Scotland
- Assess the best way to respond to this gap and design a legal solution with targeted casework, advice outreach and strategic interventions
- Maximise financial, human and social capital and achieve our outcomes through the development of innovative and sustainable collaborations across society
- Ensure that we share our learning along the way
- Harness digital and communications strategies to assist us to effectively deliver our aims
At the moment, we are establishing collaborations with the British Red Cross, the Scottish Guardianship Service, DLA Piper LLP, the University of Glasgow and many more to come. Take a look at our projects to find out more.
