Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice is "A process whereby the parties with a stake in a specific offence collectively resolve how to deal with the aftermath of the offence and its implications in the future" (Home Office)

A restorative approach offers an opportunity for those who have committed an offence to gain a greater understanding of the impact of their behaviour on others, take responsibility for their actions, apologise and make amends and allows victims to identify how the offence has impacted on them, ask any unanswered questions and support them in the healing process. There are a range of restorative approaches available to meet the individual needs of the case.

DTV CRC are committed to delivering restorative interventions to those assessed as suitable and motivated to engage in this process with the acknowledgement that this needs to be approached with sensitivity to the needs of the victims of crime.
