Becoming a “fully Restorative Youth Justice Service”: Restorative justice in Surrey.

So what do we mean by ‘fully restorative service’? We think the answer lies in our endeavour to put restorative values at the heart of all of our relationships and practices within the youth justice system, so that the restorative justice agenda moves beyond interest in ‘victims’ and ‘offenders’ and what we might do to
heal and repair when things go wrong, it furthers application of restorative approaches in the ways that we manage relationships between ourselves as work
force; to how we apply restorative values to our approach to case
management and enabling compliance; to underpin our approach to delivering
group work programmes; and strengthening families through our parenting support provision. (excerpt)
