In March 2002 the Scottish Executive announced the award of funding for restorative justice services as an approach to addressing youth offending across Scotland. Thus began a project which cumulated in the launch of a city-wide Restorative Justice Service (RJS) in August 2003. Since its inception 3 years ago the RJS has expanded significantly and has an intrinsic part of the city's approach to tackling youth offending and anti-social behaviour. The service is recognised as a model of good practice nationally.(excerpt)
