RJ Hampshire achieves Registered Service Provider status

We are pleased to announce that Restorative Solutions' Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Service RJ Hampshire has been awarded Registered Service Provider status. By achieving this status, RJ Hampshire has demonstrated its continued commitment to delivering high-quality restorative practice to nationally agreed standards.

As part of their Service Provider Registration, seven practitioners were assessed against the RJC’s Registered Practitioner Framework. The RJC and Restorative Solutions are delighted to confirm that Michelle West has been awarded Advanced Registered Practitioner status. Alongside this, Sorrell Kenny, Andrew Gill, Sam Coggins and Laura Cairns have been awarded Intermediate Registered Practitioner status and Alexandra Crockford and Liz Webster become Foundation Registered Practitioners.

Jim Simon, the RJC’s chief executive:

“I would like to congratulate Hampshire PCC Service on their achievement. The registration process highlighted that leaders have embedded robust policies and procedures which enable their Registered Practitioners to facilitate high quality, safe and effective restorative practice.”

Sorrell Kenny, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Restorative Justice Service Delivery Manager:

“The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Team are delighted to have been awarded Registered Service Provider Status. The Restorative Justice Service is extremely grateful for the excellent support it receives from our Police & Crime Commissioner and partners and would like to thank all our dedicated staff and volunteers who are committed to providing good quality restorative practice."

Lisa Allam, Domestic Abuse and Restorative Justice Commissioning Lead at the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner:

“The impact of crime can be devastating and long-lasting, which makes it essential that the right support is available at the right time to all those who need it in a way that is most appropriate for them. Restorative Justice will not be for everyone, but for many, it provides a way to find answers and can be what they need to be able to move forward. This accreditation shows that the service provided by Restorative Solutions is at the highest standard and is recognition of all the hard work by the practitioners to help victims and those who have caused harm against them through the restorative process safely.”

What people say about Restorative Solutions

I'm so glad I am working with RJ. I don't know who would listen to me if it wasn’t for you.
A Person Harmed by Crime
RJ is very underrated and I certainly think we should be using it more.
A Professional who Referred Someone into our Service
Very satisfied – it’s been a great service. A worthwhile process for me and I hope for the offenders. Staff have been great and I would like to thank them.
A victim
It was the right thing to do. Both victims told me to let go of what happened. I didn't want to hear it but they both forgave me and said I should move on. I have taken that on and thought about it and I have come to terms with what happened. You've helped me significantly. It's as though my head has been lifted of a gigantic weight.
An Offender
Thanks for your time today. I feel like you understand R so well, I really hope you can help him to learn how to be happy.
Feedback from a family in East Kent
Restorative Justice offers a unique opportunity for victims and survivors to move on from and overcome the trauma that can be left with them after experiencing crime. I am exceedingly proud of the work that the team at Restorative Solutions do in supporting our community. We should always consider the needs of victims of crime and this service exemplifies that sentiment and allows so many to put behind them what can be the worst experience of their lives.
Marc Jones, Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner and Chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.
