The RSQM is for organisations that have demonstrated that they meet the six Restorative Service Standards of the RJC. The award is external recognition of your work. It gives the public confidence in the restorative service you offer, and provides proof for commissioners and funders that you provide a quality service.

Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire is a high secure service with 210 beds for men with diagnoses of serious mental illness and offending histories. Restorative practices were established in 2014 with staff trained to support and sponsor the safe and effective resolution of conflict and, by referral, to work with those harmed by offending. The hospital is currently working towards quality standards as assessed by the RJC.
For more than 20 years we’ve been helping people resolve conflict.
We believe that mediation has the power to improve the health, well-being and resilience of all individuals in our communities. Because effects of conflict are far-reaching, tools to address this should be available to everyone.
As part of our current efforts, Calm Mediation offers Restorative Justice, Workplace Mediation, as well as Community Mediation, across the UK.
