Why Voice advocates Restorative Justice
This is article from the Restorative Justice Council website which highlights the reasons why Voice approves of the use of Restorative Justice.
The RJC is the independent third sector membership body for the field of restorative practice. It provides quality assurance and a national voice advocating the widespread use of all forms of restorative practice, including restorative justice. The RJC’s vision is of a society where high quality restorative practice is available to all.
The RJC’s role is to set and champion clear standards for restorative practice. It ensures quality and supports those in the field to build on their capacity and accessibility. At the same time, the RJC raises public awareness and confidence in restorative processes. The ultimate aim of the RJC is to drive take-up and to enable safe, high quality restorative practice to develop and thrive.
Upset and Angry? Let me explain
Coping and recovering from harm or conflict can be difficult. You will probably be feeling emotional, upset and at times angry. Seeking answers to questions that you may be asking yourself and others around you can help. Restorative justice can help you ask those questions directly from the person who has been in conflict with you or done you harm.
