What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative justice is the process of bringing together those harmed by crime or conflict with those responsible for the harm, to find a positive way forward.

In criminal justice, restorative processes give victims the chance to:

  • Tell offenders the real impact of their crime.
  • Get answers to their questions.
  • Get an apology.

Restorative justice holds offenders to account for what they have done. It helps them understand the real impact, take responsibility, and make amends.
