Restorative justice was introduced as a way of dealing with interpersonal conflicts, as well as
with residents’ criminal and anti-social behaviour. This report evaluates the influence of
restorative justice on young people and staff, and their experiences of its effects as a means of
dealing with residents’ criminal acts, anti-social behaviour and interpersonal conflicts. It also
analyses the effect that its introduction had on police call-outs to the four residential units. (excerpt)
