Thames Valley Restorative Justice Service

Thames Valley Restorative Justice Service

Restorative Justice (RJ) gives victims of crime the opportunity to have a voice.

RJ facilitates some form of communication between a victim and offender to hopefully address the feelings and consequences that have arisen from the offence.

Victims of crime include family members, witnesses and anyone else affected by the crime.

RJ is designed to allow victims to have their harm or loss acknowledged, their questions answered and some amends made if that is what they wish.

Offenders have the opportunity to take responsibility, acknowledge the impact of their actions and to try and make amends.

Together, they can work towards some form of understanding and find a positive way forward to allow the victim some sense of closure to allow them to move on.
