What does it do?
Restorative Justice (RJ) is a victim focused approach that empowers victims and communities. Becoming a victim of crime is often a traumatic experience. Many victims feel that their life has been turned upside down, and what was once normal and familiar no longer feels safe. Whilst the criminal justice process deals with the offence, it can sometimes leave those harmed feeling out of control and in need of answers that simply cannot be provided during the formal process. Restorative Justice can change this.
