The RJC is pleased to announce that Stoke Youth Offending Service has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM).

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said:

“I am delighted that Stoke Youth Offending Service has successfully completed the RSQM. This demonstrates its commitment to providing the highest standards in restorative practice, and I would like to congratulate the whole team on this achievement.”

The RSQM is a badge of quality that guarantees that a service provides safe, high quality restorative practice which meets the six Restorative Service Standards. Stoke Youth Offending Service joins other RSQM awardees – in sectors ranging from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative processes.

Lindsay Leech, Stoke Youth Offending Service’s Innovation and Policy Coordinator, said:

“We were over the moon to hear we had passed the RSQM, and have the high quality service we provide recognised externally. Our staff and volunteer teams across the board are now also receiving greater support around restorative justice delivery as a result. The help we received from the RJC was fantastic throughout and I would recommend any organisation thinking of applying to go for it!”
