Restorative Justice can transform the lives of people affected by crime, giving them the chance to have their questions answered, explain the damage done by the incident and move forward.
Every victim of crime with a known offender should be informed about Restorative Justice, but data from the Office of National Statistics shows that only 1 in 20 recall this happening in reality.
This isn’t good enough, and we can change it together.
Victims of crime should be able to decide for themselves whether they want to explore Restorative Justice, and be offered a referral to a restorative provider.
Why Me are calling on PCC candidates to #SignTheRJPledge to support giving victims of crime this opportunity.
