Events and training

Clinks runs events and training for voluntary organisations working in the criminal justice system.

On this page you can find regularly updated information on upcoming events and training, and information on our annual conference and AGM.

Our regular events include national and regional criminal justice forums; specialist thematic network forums for those working with women, people from racially minoritised backgrounds and those who deliver arts-based interventions and support within the criminal justice system.

We deliver regular online training on how to navigate the criminal justice system; working and volunteering in prisons and understanding the need for a gendered approach to working with women in the criminal justice system, which we can also deliver in-house on request.

If you would like to showcase your work at our forums, or discuss potential training opportunities for in-house training, please email We are keen to ensure our events and training offer meets the needs of the voluntary sector working in criminal justice and welcome your ideas and suggestions on how to improve this.
