RJ Merseyside achieves Registered Service Provider status

We are pleased to announce that Restorative Solutions' Merseyside Restorative Justice Service has been awarded Registered Service Provider status. As part of their registration, 2 practitioners were assessed against the RJC’s Registered Practitioner Framework. We are delighted to confirm that Jeannette Wrigley and Kevin Reevey have both been awarded Advanced Registered Practitioner status. By achieving this status, Restorative Solutions Merseyside Restorative Justice Service and their Registered Practitioners have demonstrated their commitment to delivering high quality restorative practice to nationally agreed standards.

Jim Simon, the RJC’s chief executive said:

“The Merseyside 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 the Merseyside Restorative Justice Service team on their achievement.”

Jeannette Wrigley, Merseyside Restorative Justice Service’s Delivery Manager said:

“Achieving Registered status with the RJC has confirmed that we are providing a high standard of service to the public of Merseyside. In my heart I knew we offered a quality service but independent evaluation through the Registration process has validated this.”

Emily Spurrell, Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner said:

“Restorative Justice can be a really important process giving victims a chance to get answers following a crime and helping them to find a way to move on with their lives. Restorative Solutions have been offering high-quality advice and support to victims of crime who are considering using restorative justice for the last three years as part of the Victim Care Merseyside service. This accreditation recognises the excellent standard they offer to victims here in Merseyside and is a visible charter mark that will give reassurance to those who are considering using restorative justice that the service they will receive is second to none.

My congratulations to Jeannette and Kevin on achieving this status. I look forward to working with them in the future to ensure even more victims of crime have access to what can be a crucial step in their recovery.”

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.
