What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative processes bring those harmed by crime or conflict, and those responsible for the harm, into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.
In criminal justice, restorative processes are widely known as restorative justice. Restorative justice gives victims the chance to meet or communicate with their offenders to explain the real impact of the crime and get answers to their questions - it empowers victims by giving them a voice
Restorative processes are increasingly being used in schools, care homes and the wider community to address conflict, build understanding and strengthen relationships with young people. In these contexts it is also known by the names 'restorative approaches' and 'restorative practices'.
In Surrey & Sussex we have over 60 trained Restorative Justice trained facilitators who are trained and ready to review all cases for suitability and eligibility. All potential cases are reviewed by our trained Co-ordinators at the monthly meetings on each division: Brighton & Hove, East and West.
