Decision of the Charity Commission published on 30 May 2003.
The commission considered an application by Restorative Justice Consortium Limited for registration as a charity. The commission had previously considered that ‘restorative justice’ did not have an agreed definition. On considering the charity’s activities further, the commission decided that it could be registered with revised objects.
This decision is significant because the commission had to consider the organisation’s activities with analogy to previously accepted charitable purposes connected with justice and public order.
