The Risk Management Authority's purpose is to make Scotland safer by setting the standard for risk practice to reduce reoffending and the harm that it causes

      Our duties focus on protecting the public by ensuring that robust risk assessment and risk management practices are in place to reduce the risk of serious harm posed by violent and sexual offenders

      What we do

      The RMA works closely with partner agencies to develop and promote risk assessment and management practices that are proportionate, meaningful and legitimate. And by supporting the practitioners who work within the field of criminal justice, helping them to carry out their work effectively and consistently, we contribute to our wider purpose of reducing reoffending and the harm that it causes.
