Restorative Justice Week 2014

November 17, 2014

RJ is the process of bringing together victims of crime and their offenders to discuss the impact of the crime, repair the harm and find a positive way forward. It offers victims the chance to be heard, get answers to questions and provide a sense of closure. It also forces offenders to face up to the impact of their behavior and in this way can help to reduce reoffending….

Victims’ organisations, RJ practitioners and Police & Crime Commissioners are supporting RJ Week using #whatwouldyoudo on social media and promoting RJ through a range of publicity materials.

Visit our Facebook campaign page to find out more about RJ, join the ‘What would you do?’ debate and watch the stories of victims who have met their offender in an RJ conference.

Correctional Service Canada and the European Forum for Restorative Justice also have information and resources for commemorating this week.
