About Us

The Fair Justice System for Scotland Group (FJSS Group) is a grassroots-led legal charity based in West Calder, West Lothian. The organisation is currently the leading voice for justice sector reforms necessary to create greater equality, diversity and representative employment and appointments in the Scottish justice system. The FJSS Group advocates for a justice system reflective of the diversity of the Scottish society and our work is geared to influence justice delivery policy in Scotland through informing the process of policy formulation and development by engaging with the key policy and decision makers.

To this end the FJSS Group works closely with the key stakeholders in the justice system including the Scottish Government, the Judicial Institute for Scotland, the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service, Police Scotland, the Scottish Parliament, the Law Society of Scotland, HM Inspectorate services across all the disciplines (Prison Service Scotland, HM Constabulary and Crown Prosecution). This connects our work with the key policies and process that shape the Scottish justice system and the Scottish Government’s wider community and social justice outcomes.
