RJC briefing on Ministry of Justice consultation: Getting it right for victims and witnesses

February 27, 2012

The Restorative Justice Council welcomes the Government’s proposals on restorative justice. We have produced a four-page briefing for RJC Members highlighting the sections of Getting it right for victims and witnesses that refer to restorative justice.

The Restorative Justice Council will respond on behalf of the sector, and we welcome your views as members as to the points you wish us to make to Government on your behalf. For example:

We would warmly encourage all our members to respond to Question 19 – the only one in the consultation paper directly on restorative justice (“What measures could be put in place to ensure the safety of the victims when undertaking restorative justice?”). The briefing provides guidance on three key issues to highlight in your response – quality training, quality practice and quality services.
