We are pleased to announce that Restorative Solutions Kent & Medway Restorative Justice Service has been awarded Registered Service Provider status. As part of their registration, 5 practitioners were assessed against the RJC’s Registered Practitioner Framework and have been awarded Registered Practitioner status.

The Kent & Medway Restorative Justice Service was launched in 2017 and covers the whole of the Kent and Medway area. Funded by the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, the service works with victims and offenders of any age; bringing those harmed by crime and those responsible for the harm into communication with each other.

Jim Simon, the RJC’s chief executive said:

“The Kent & Medway Restorative Justice Service and their Registered Practitioners have demonstrated through the registration process that they are committed to providing access to high quality, safe and effective restorative practice. I would like to congratulate Kent & Medway Restorative Justice Service’s team on their achievement.”

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.
