Our focus is on high quality restorative justice (RJ) delivered by trained facilitators, locally within all 32 London boroughs. Our model enables victims to access the service at any stage of the Criminal Justice process, at a time in their life journey that suits them. We put the interests and needs of the victim first and ensure they have all the knowledge they need to make an informed choice to participate in the RJ process.
R:L also campaigns to increase awareness, access and take up of restorative interventions across London.
We conducted research to support this goal, and found that in London:
•31% have never heard of RJ
•85% of victims have never been offered RJ and
•70% of these would like to be offered RJ
•Londoners told us they would like this offer at any point in the Criminal Justice process, by a single point of contact and someone they trust.
