Justice Models

Restorative Processes bring those harmed by crime or conflict, and those responsible for the harm, into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.

Their area, a wide range of models of restorative practice which enable that communication to take place. All these practices should be underpinned by the RJC (Restorative Justice Council) Principles of Restorative Processes (2015) and are covered by the Best Practice Guidance
