Partners across Suffolk are effectively using restorative approaches to support victims of crime. Restorative processes can give victims the chance to tell offenders the real impact of their crime, to get answers to their questions, and on some occasions, an apology. This video clip shows the effect restorative justice can have.
The Restorative Justice Council website is a good source for more information. A strategy and action plan for embedding Restorative Approaches further across Suffolk is currently being developed and will be available shortly.
