Delivering restorative justice – making multiagency partnerships work
The RJC has published a new report looking at the ways in which organisations delivering restorative justice can join together to develop multiagency partnerships. The report is based on work undertaken with three areas – Hertfordshire, Northumbria and Sussex – where multiagency partnerships have been formed.
The RJC held events with all three areas, and extracted some broad principles surrounding the development and effective running of a multiagency partnership. These findings are contained in the report, along with practical advice on how to set up a partnership.
Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said: “The next step for restorative justice delivery is joining up working, and improving collaboration between agencies.
“This guide is a great resource for organisations which want to improve and formalise their working relationships. Making the right decisions early on in the partnership process will ensure that the relationships will work well and that a joined up and efficient service will be offered to victims and offenders.”
