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.
