Commissioned Restorative Justice Services
Restorative Solutions can provide an end-to-end capability for Restorative Justice conferencing and other Restorative Justice outcomes. Our team of experienced Restorative Justice practitioners comes from a wide number of agencies, such as probation, prisons, police, education, and includes former offenders who have changed their lives following a Restorative Justice intervention.
We will engage with organisations in order to offer a bespoke service for Restorative Justice conferencing and case management which could include case selection, assessment of suitability, preparatory engagement with participants, post conference support and peer mentoring for offenders prior to and post conference.
Working with Police and Crime Commissioners
Our work has ranged from designing, setting up and delivering a full Restorative Justice Service to testing out pilot projects for addressing local needs. Our approach is to work in partnership to develop services that are safe and effective for the client as well as being cost efficient for the commissioner. We have delivered or are delivering services for Police and Crime Commissioners in the following areas:
- Avon and Somerset
- Devon and Cornwall
- Dyfed Powys
- Greater Manchester
- South Yorkshire
- West Midlands
Some examples include:
