Throughcare: Stages in the Provision of a Throughcare Service to Prisoners

Throughcare National Development (Champions) Group

The Throughcare National Development Group, convened by the Criminal Justice Social Work Development Centre for Scotland, commissioned the development of a 'map' of the Throughcare process. The Group acknowledges the work of Muriel Sleith who populated the map with relevant material and scripted the video case studies.

The Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (IRISS), formerly known as SIESWE, was responsible for the design and production of the video case studies and the map itself. Responsibility for the maintenance and updating of the map lies with the National Development Group and the Criminal Justice Social Work Development Centre for Scotland (CJSW).


Please note that the contents of Throughcare Map have not been updated since 2009. As a result, certain of the processes described here may no longer be current and accurate. It remains online as an historical resource, but has been superseded by Youth & criminal justice in Scotland: the young person's journey.
