Restorative justice can offer reductions in offending and provide tangible benefits to victims. The Ministry of Justice continues to push for good quality, victim-focussed restorative justice to be offered to all victims.

Attend this timely Westminster Briefing to receive an up-to-date brief on the Government’s vision for restorative justice. This is a good opportunity to explore how restorative justice is performing in your area and to hear what good practice is happening across the country. 

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Understanding recent developments and Government priorities for RJ
  • Developing your RJ offer and improving your support to victims and offenders
  • Ensuring equal access to RJ at all stages of the criminal justice process
  • Working with PCCs to deliver and commission RJ locally
  • Case studies of successful RJ provision
  • Tackling information sharing issues and the challenges of GDPR
  • Measuring your performance and understanding what counts as success 

About the Day:

The morning session will deliver an expert-led brief on current issues and policy themes. You will learn about how to maximise the effectiveness of your provisions, and in what circumstances different types of restorative justice delivery should be used.

In the afternoon session you will consider good practice cases studies for you to take back and implement in your setting.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.

The event is CPD certified, and a certificate is available confirming your attendance.
