Restorative Justice

The Restorative Justice Service in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.  The funding has been allocated by the Ministry of Justice through the Victim’s Fund and the vision is that victim focused, quality Restorative Justice will be available at all stages of the Criminal Justice System.

Key points are:

  • Restorative justice brings together people harmed by crime or conflict with those responsible for the harm, to find a positive way forward.
  • Restorative justice gives victims the chance to tell offenders the real impact of their crime, get answers to their questions and 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.
