Restorative Justice in Lincolnshire
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire commissions Restorative Solutions to deliver their Restorative Justice service.
What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice offers victims of crime the chance to get answers and an explanation from the offender.
If you have been the victim of crime and the offender has admitted guilt, Restorative Justice gives you the chance to have your say, explain how their behaviour has affected you and for you to seek a direct explanation as to what they did and why.
For many people, Restorative Justice helps to gain closure following a potentially traumatic experience.
Victims who have participated in Restorative Justice have reported that it has been an empowering experience; giving them a voice, repairing harm, regaining control of their lives and helping to prevent further crime.
For many people who have been affected by crime, Restorative Justice enables them to explore why the crime has happened and why it has happened to them in particular.
It can also help people to ‘move on’ with their lives and feel less fearful of being the victim of a further crime. Through this process, you may be able to influence the offender’s behaviour, thereby helping to reduce potential further crime and other people becoming victims.
