The Restorative Justice APPG Inquiry Has Been PublishedSaturday 25th September 2021
The Inquiry is titled ‘Restorative Practices in 2021/22’ and was carried out from 5th July - 15th August to assess where the sector is at the moment, and what steps could be taken to improve and coordinate the various services to improve outcomes for victims and offenders.
Of the inquiry, Jim Simon, Chairman of the Advisory Board and Chief Executive of the Restorative Justice Council, said:
“This Inquiry has brought together over 50 leading practitioners and exponents of restorative practices to assess the current state of the sector and how government can help make the sector more accessible.
“Astonishingly there was over 200,000 words of evidence submitted and the recommendations reflect the incredible passion there is for restorative justice. We are very hopeful that most in Westminster will recognise the enormous benefits of rolling out restorative practices in the UK and support the Inquiry’s recommendations in full.”
