The following documents are part of a suite of documents that will act as a definitive guide to
the principles and best practice for restorative justice services in the Childrenâ€™s Hearings
System. They are the product of work undertaken by a group comprising representatives from
the Scottish Childrenâ€™s Reporter Administration, practitioners from restorative justice services
across Scotland, a restorative justice consultant and the Scottish Executive. The Group
consulted with youth justice interests during the formulation of the documents.
The documents produced so far by the group include:
1. Statement of Principles on the Use of Restorative Justice Processes in the Childrenâ€™s
2. Criteria for Referrals to Restorative Justice Services within the Childrenâ€™s Hearings
3. Protocol for Referrals to Restorative Justice Services within the Childrenâ€™s Hearings
