“This research reports the findings of an evaluation of the work of the Restorative Justice Team (RJ Team) within the Leeds Youth Offending Service (YOS) with regard to victim involvement and input into referral orders and youth offender panels. Through an examination of a six-month cohort of cases in 2004, the research draws upon qualitative and quantitative data, including a survey of young people and victims who did not attend panel meetings, as well as in-depth interviews with victims who attended a panel meeting, young people and their parents.” (abstract)
