As part of International Restorative Justice Week John Willett, Strategic Restorative Justice (RJ) Manager for Sussex explains what RJ is and its positive outcomes on those affected by crime.
In the UK, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has made a commitment to develop access to RJ at every stage of the criminal justice process. Its Restorative Justice Strategy has made £29 million available nationally to Police and Crime Commissioners and charities to help deliver RJ for victims of crime over three years.
Locally, the Sussex Restorative Justice Partnership (SRJP) has been established to bring together statutory, voluntary and third sector organisations who deliver RJ services to improve capacity and capabilities.
