Restorative Organisation Registration Framework

This Framework sets out how a restorative organisation should work. We have been careful to ensure that it does not constrain practice or hamper creativity and the need for services to develop and exercise their professional judgement. This Framework has been designed to be flexible so that it applies across different types of restorative practice without being overly prescriptive.  

The Framework is broken into six performance indicators with each indicator consisting of a number of standards which outline the requirements organisations are required to evidence.
