Restorative Justice ConferencingRestorative Justice Conferencing

Did you know that if you are a victim of crime and the offender has accepted responsibility you may be entitled to something called restorative justice conferencing?


Restorative justice conferencing is a facilitated opportunity for the victim to communicate with the offender, seek explanations and express the impact the crime had on them. It can also be a place for the offender to agree with the victim how they intend to make amends for the harm caused.


Best results are usually achieved via fully supervised face-to-face conferencing, but we know that isn’t right for everyone – each case is different. Whatever your decision you can be sure that you will be supported at every step of the way to find a solution that is right for you.


The initiative dovetails with the force’s CARE campaign and aspirations by this force to become a top performer in terms of victim satisfaction.
