Restorative Justice in the West Midlands is delivered by the West Midlands RJ Service (if the offender is over 18) through a contact point called the West Midlands RJ Hub. If the offender is under 18, RJ is delivered by the local Youth Offending Service.
Ways to obtain RJ
Anyone based in the West Midlands who contacts the police about an incident, whether it is a criminal case or not, will obtain RJ free via your local RJ service. You can:
- Either phone 101 (unless it is an emergency, in which case they should call 999). You do no need say you want RJ. You should be offered RJ where appropriate, but note that you can ask for it if you wish, even if it not offered.
- Or you can contact the West Midlands Hub directly on free phone: 0800 488 0894 or via email at Restorative_Justice@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk.
No Payment Required
RJ requested by an individual in the West Midlands is free. Note that organisations such as housing associations may be asked to pay.
The WM RJ Service is a joint collaboration between WMP, Remedi and The Pioneer Group. The Service is funded by the West Midlands Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner.
The website giving more information about the West Midlands RJ Hub is currently being revised and should be available shortly. When it is we will include a link here.
