Restorative Justice: Information pack for the judiciary

leave a comment »

It is some time since I wrote in this blog about restorative justice. (See Nov 2012 and April 2013).
The leading charity in the field, the Resorative Justice Council, has just (October 2015) published an information pack about restorative justice.The pack has been developed with the help of the Magistrates’ Association, the Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service.

It is designed to help magistrates, crown court judges and court staff to understand restorative justice, the benefits it can bring to all parties involved in a crime and the role that the judiciary can play in the process.

As well as providing information on restorative justice and its use in sentencing, the pack features a checklist for restorative justice, an article about why the judiciary can have confidence in the approach, and the voices of victims and offenders who have taken part in a restorative justice process.

The pack can be downloaded free from https://www.restorativejustice.org.uk/resources/restorative-justice-and-judiciary-information-pack
