Victims of crime don’t know about RJ

Most victims of crime do not know about Restorative Justice.

Ray and Vi Donovan talked to Victim Support Managers for Sussex and Surrey on Tuesday 6th March. They talked about the Restorative Justice meeting with one of the young men who attacked and killed their son Chris. They talked about the freedom this meeting brought them and the hard journey to get to that meeting.

The consensus in the room was to spread the word about Restorative Justice to victims of crime – to give them and their families and friends the opportunities to consider it as an option.

You can find out more about the work which Ray and Vi undertake on the Chris Donovan Trust website.
