What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice is safe, supported, voluntary communication between a person harmed by a crime or conflict and the person causing the harm.
See explanatory videos here
Restorative Justice creates opportunities for people affected by crime, conflict, anti-social behaviour or the harmful actions of others to come together with the person responsible for causing the harm in order to get answers to their questions and to explain the effect the incident has had on them.
In criminal justice, restorative processes give victims the chance to tell offenders the real impact of their crime, to get answers to their questions, and an apology. Restorative justice (RJ) holds offenders to account for what they have done, helps them understand the real impact, to take responsibility and to make amends.
