The RJC is offering 10 non-criminal justice sector organisations the chance to apply for the newly-updated Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM) for just £1,500 plus VAT – a saving of £2,500 on the standard application fee. The offer is open on a first come first served basis to all organisations using restorative practice outside the criminal justice system.

The RJC launched our newly updated RSQM earlier this year. Designed to simplify the application and assessment process, changes to the RSQM were also made to recognise the growing number of sectors in which restorative practice is now taking place. The RSQM is suitable for organisations of any size and in any sector, including education, health, children’s residential care and housing. 

A limited number of Ministry of Justice subsidised rates are also still available to criminal justice sector applicants at a cost of £3,000. 

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said: “Standards and quality assurance are central to the RJC’s remit, and we recognised that our accreditation products needed to develop and evolve to meet the growing needs of the field. 

“We’re particularly keen to support the growth of restorative practice in emerging and non-criminal justice sectors, where standards and quality assurance are equally essential. We hope that a wide variety of organisations will take up this offer and apply for the RSQM.”
