Sacro showcase event

Yesterday, I was pleased to attend the Sacro showcase event at the Dundee Voluntary Action offices in Constitution Road.
Sacro is a national community justice voluntary organisation working across Scotland to make communities safer by reducing conflict and offending.
It was very interesting to hear about the good work Sacro is undertaking in Dundee and across Tayside, particularly its youth restorative justice service.
You can find out more about the work of Sacro here.
