RSQM - special offers for new applicants

27 June 2017

The Restorative Justice Council is offering a limited number of organisations the chance to apply for the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM) at a reduced price.  As an independent quality mark, the RSQM will allow your organisation to demonstrate to commissioners, partners and the public that you are delivering safe, quality restorative practice. 

This year, with the support of the Ministry of Justice, we are offering a reduced rate to 20 organisations working in the criminal justice sector of £3,000 plus VAT – a saving of £1,000 on the standard fee.

We also have five RSQM places available for just £1,500 plus VAT – a saving of £2,500 on the standard application fee - to organisations using restorative practice outside of the criminal justice system. The RSQM recognises the growing number of sectors in which restorative practice is now taking place, and is suitable for organisations of any size and in any sector, including education, health, children’s residential care and housing, as well as in criminal justice.

Here’s what two awardees had to say about the RSQM:

“The restorative focus provided by the RSQM greatly assisted us to embed victim awareness work throughout our approach. There is a definite sense amongst all those involved that we are now providing improved services for victims and offenders as a result.”  - Gary Connor, Northumbria CRC’s operational lead for restorative justice

“The RSQM provided us with a structure and a focus for drawing together all of the pieces of the jigsaw that are happening across the school. It offers cohesion. It allowed us to audit our culture and to find out where there were missing pieces in our restorative culture." – Andy Williams, deputy headteacher at Monmouthshire Comprehensive School

Demand is high, so please contact us as soon as possible to register your interest at standards@restorativejustice.org.uk, or call us on 020 7831 5700.
