In October 2015, we published the Barriers and Solutions report exploring the main challenges for victims accessing restorative services.
In April 2016 our Valuing Victims report reviewed Police and Crime Commissioners’ use of MoJ funding of Restorative Justice (RJ) from 2013 – 2016. The report, published ahead of the PCC election process was, to an extent, incomplete as we were waiting for funding information from the MoJ. This information has now been made available to us and we are now publishing an addendum to this report in addition to updating individual PCC reports and victim access information via our web site.
The research indicates:
- Significant variations between PCC areas with regards to spending on RJ services
- a range of models which have been implemented
- inconsistent information about local RJ provision for victims of crime
Trevor Watson (Campaign Officer) said:
We want the research to add value for victims by providing them with useful contact information for access to local restorative services. We are confident the information will also assist PCC’s as they look to make decisions on finance for future years.
Any questions regarding the report please contact Lucy or Trevor on 020 3096 7708 or email Trevor.Watson@why-me.org.
