Restorative justice

Restorative justice action plans and progress reports.

Restorative justice brings together people harmed by crime or conflict with those responsible for the harm, to find a positive way forward.

Restorative justice gives victims the chance to tell offenders the real impact of their crime, get answers to their questions and get an apology.

Restorative justice holds offenders to account for what they have done. It helps them understand the real impact, take responsibility, and make amends.

Restorative Justice Week

The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) is supporting Restorative Justice providers to raise awareness of their services in their local areas. MOJ has developed a range of communication materials to support local providers.
