Restorative justice in community rehabilitation companies and the National Probation Service - Information pack
The Restorative Justice Council (RJC) has launched the fourth in a series of information packs designed to help increase the use of restorative justice within the criminal justice system. The Restorative justice information pack for Community Rehabilitation Companies and the National Probation Service was developed in collaboration with key people in the probation field and provides information on the delivery of high quality restorative justice within the new probation landscape.
The RJC’s CEO, Jon Collins, said: “Probation is changing, and we see this as an opportunity to strengthen the delivery of restorative justice within the rehabilitation process. We want more victims and offenders to be offered the chance to take part in a restorative justice process and for all criminal justice professionals and volunteers to understand the benefits it can bring.”
The Restorative justice information pack for Community Rehabilitation Companies and the National Probation Service provides important information on the use of restorative justice within the new probation landscape and is now available alongside information packs for magistrates, youth offending teams and police. All four packs are useful for those new to the concept of restorative justice as well as those already implementing it within their work who want to read about innovation within restorative justice.
