What is restorative justice? Restorative
justice (RJ) is a safe and voluntary process which brings those who
have been affected by crime into communication with those responsible to
help everyone move forward from what has happened. Restorative justice
focuses on the needs of both the victim and the offender, allowing both
to explore what has happened, the impact that the incident has had on
them and what everyone needs to move forward.
Who is it for? Restorative
justice can be used for all types of crime or incident, from those
which have had less impact on the people involved, to more serious or
What are the benefits? Research shows that four out of five victims who have engaged with restorative justice found that it significantly helped them to move on and would recommend it to others. People who have been affected by crime often say that they felt empowered by the process and really appreciated the opportunity to have their say and to ask questions.From an offender’s perspective, understanding the impact their behaviour has caused can help the offender turn their life around and prevent them from offending again. Everyone benefits from restorative justice in different ways because the process aims to support both victim and offender needs.
