Restorative Justice

Has crime affected you? Do you wish your voice could be heard? Restorative Together can help.

Restorative Justice Logo

Restorative Together helps people affected by crime to communicate with the person or people responsible. This communication can take the form of letters, shuttle communication, or even face-to-face meetings.

We have already helped people of all ages in cases of:

  • Bullying (face-to-face and online)
  • Neighbourhood disputes
  • Criminal damage
  • Racial abuse
  • Physical assault
  • Car accidents
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Sexual assault and abuse
  • Manslaughter and murder

Restorative justice (RJ) is a voluntary process and, to be most successful, it is necessary for those who have done wrong to admit what they have done.

It can help:

  • Repair some of the harm that has been caused.
  • Give those who have been harmed a chance to express how they feel and to ask questions.
  • People who have caused harm to appreciate how they have affected others and to reflect on their behaviour.
  • All those involved to move on from the experience.

Some quotes from people who have used restorative justice.

Perpetrators: 

  • Although RJ was not right for the victims at this time, the process helped me a lot.
  • I felt better after the meeting.

A victim:

  • I got answers to the questions I really wanted answered, and it was good to hear things from his perspective. It was a good experience; the facilitators created a safe, controlled environment (in the face-to-face meeting), which helped settle my fears.
  • I felt a sense of relief.
