This report focuses on the use of restorative justice with young people in custody, and aims to achieve three objectives. Firstly, to provide an up-to-date descriptive account of restorative practices within the secure estate. This account looks at issues of classification, definition and understanding. Secondly, to present a critical overview of existing restorative practices with the objective of establishing the extent to which they influence the regimes and programmes of the secure estate. A cost-benefit analysis of restorative justice is also attempted. Thirdly, to look at the potential, barrier and enablers of a restorative justice strategy in the secure estate. (excerpt)
