The New South Wales Department of Corrective Services has established a Restorative Justice Unit to facilitate victim offender conferencing. These two brief articles cover the results of a victim offender conference and a summary of restorative justice. The conference dealt with an incident of breaking and entering and theft from a home in a small country town by a juvenile. The summary of restorative justice covers its differences from the traditional system of justice, some research findings about outcomes of restorative justice processes, its benefits for victims and offenders, and an outline of the Restorative Justice Unit’s response to a reported offence.
