Restorative Justice Hub
The South Yorkshire Restorative Justice Hub works to assess suitable cases for restorative justice and make contact with the victim once the case has been to court.
A victim will receive a call from our specialist provider Remedi, to determine if they have an interest in pursuing restorative justice.
Remedi work with the victim to help prepare them for Restorative Justice, and work with the offender to determine if both individuals are happy to progress with RJ. RJ is completely voluntary in that both parties must agree to it.
All cases are risk assessed to ensure no further harm can come to the victim or offender.
In cases of in-direct restorative justice, letters or questions may be passed between the victim and offender. An offender may write a letter of apology to the victim explaining why they committed the offence and why that particular victim.
Victims often have unanswered questions that only the offender can answer.
If, as a victim, you feel Restorative Justice could help you or you wish to find out more about it from a trained Restorative Justice practitioner contact us.
