Stories from victims who had the opportunity for restorative justice
from the Why Me? website:
Why Me? gives victims who have experienced restorative justice the opportunity to tell their stories, through print and broadcast media, as well as directly to politicians and policy makers. We also highlight the benefits of restorative justice through a range of creative means, including drama, film and art.
The absence of restorative justice in the criminal justice system highlights the lack of respect for the experience of victims and the lack of space for their voice to be heard. Confidence in the system is low. Many people, whether victims or not, feel marginalised, believing that the system is more about offenders than them. Why me is working with all victims who support our aims to find out from them how the criminal justice system can be improved.
