According to many research, peer-support and volunteer groups play an invaluable role in supporting an offender's rehabilitation efforts. They help to facilitate the offender's re-entry into society, providing the necessary support to help them break away from their criminal lifestyle.

Under the Friends Engaging and Support Scheme (FrENS), the CJC's befriending services will provide support to offenders who undergo a short-term incarceration, with a view to facilitate rehabilitation and reintegration of the offenders.

Sheila, a widow, misappropriated funds form her company due to some family financial issues. Besides providing her a pro bono lawyer, the CJC, together with its community partners provided support for her sick mother and two young daughters while she was in prison for three months. A job was waiting for her when she was released and she was able to get back onto her feet within a few months. Today, Sheila is able to provide for her dependents and to repay her previous company the money she has taken.

About the Charity

The Community Justice Centre (CJC) was launched in March 2013 by the Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, to help unrepresented litigants who may be daunted by the prospect of handling a case on their own. CJC offers these litigants assistance with the courts processes and procedures, so that that they may better navigate the court system, thereby enhancing access to justice, irrespective of background or social status.CJC also assists litigants who face financial difficulties or underlying emotional or psychological distress. By working in partnership with social agencies, lawyers and volunteers, CJC provides a continuum of tiered programmes, catering to the individual needs of these litigants.
