- The Ministry of Justice commissioned an evaluation of three pilot restorative justice schemes, which used a mix of conferencing, mediation and indirect mediation methods.
- This research suggests that restorative justice has the potential to be associated with high levels of victim satisfaction.
- This is particularly so for the conferencing method of restorative justice, which was associated with 85% overall victim satisfaction.
- Surveys on restorative justice have found that victims report an 85% satisfaction rate. A drop of around 14% in reoffending rates was recorded among perpetrators.
