Our reports focus on specific issues, introduce the policy and context, and offer recommendations for change. They are often presented to decision makers as evidence, and assist our lobbying, campaigning and influencing activities.

Guides & toolkits
Clinks creates guides and toolkits to support the work of  Voluntary and Community Sector organisations that work in and around the Criminal Justice System. These resources are free to download, if you want hard copies of the resources (subject to availability) these can be supplied free of charge to Clinks Members.

We produce Briefings for our members to ensure they stay up to date with the latest relevant policy and legislative developments in the Criminal Justice System. These allow you to digest significant developments quickly and to plan your organisation's response.

Clinks produces written responses to proposals from policy makers and legislatures on issues which affect the Voluntary and Community Sector and its service users. The responses represent the Voluntary and Community Sector’s views and concerns collected through consultations and other feed back.

We produce a number of ebulletins to keep subscribers up to date with the latest developments in their area of the Criminal Justice System. We have the popular Light Lunch, Arts Alliance bulletin and the members-only Policy Briefing and Offender Health Bulletin.

Speeches & presentations
Clinks staff regularly speak at conferences and events on key issues in the Criminal Justice System. We use our expertise, and that of our members to represent the sector.

Discussion papers
Our Discussion Papers identify and unpick an issue in order to better inform our members. They are interactive documents aimed at provoking thought and response.

Annual reviews
Our Annual Review is our yearly publication that informs members and stakeholders of our activities over the last twelve months.
