Supporting Restorative Justice Week
Restorative Solutions CIC is supporting International Restorative Justice week (20th – 27th November 2016). The campaign week highlights the impact that Restorative Justice can have on the victims of crime, by giving them an opportunity to have a voice within the criminal Justice system
Restorative Solutions work in partnership with more than 15 Police and Crime Commissioner around the country to support victims of crime through Restorative Justice.
Restorative Justice lets victims of crime explain directly to an offender how their actions has affected them and ask questions and to seek an explanation from the offender.
This process allows victims to feel empowered and to help them move forward with their lives. Restorative Justice does not replace Criminal Justice proceedings but works alongside it.
Restorative Solution’s Chief Executive, Gary Stephenson, said, “Restorative Justice Week gives us an opportunity to highlight the positive impact the Restorative Justice can have on the victims of crime. Each year our team works with hundreds of people who have found themselves the victim. Through RJ we are able to support them to have a voice and tell the offender what impact their crime has had on them.”
