Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th November 2020

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has brought into stark relief the altruism of many who work for essential services and the deep-rooted structural violence endured by many communities within our societies. Restorative justice principles and practices can play a significant role in making our ‘systems’ much more person-centred and a means of building resilient and stronger communities and families.

The Victims’ Code is the statutory document which sets out the minimum level of services that victims of crime should receive from criminal justice agencies and other organisations in England and Wales. It came into effect in 2006, having been required by the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004. It built on the support for victims within the Victims’ Charter, which was introduced in 1990 and which set out for the first time the levels of service victims of crime should expect.

James Simon
21 May 2020

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a swift and immediate impact on the delivery of restorative justice across the United Kingdom. It has led to many service providers facing significant operational challenges and a need for practitioners to quickly adapt the way in which in they work to ensure that they can continue to support service users during lockdown. It is not unusual for practitioners to have to be adaptable; the environment in which we work often leads us to amend they way in which we work to ensure that participant needs are met.
