RJ Week 2023

Posted on: 26th, October 2023

The third week of November each year is Restorative Justice Week, an international campaign that highlights Restorative Justice and the organisations that facilitate the process. 

The theme for Restorative Justice Week 2023 is ‘Restoring Dialogue, Solidarity & Justice in Today's Societies’, highlighting the value of Restorative Justice in helping both individuals and communities find positive ways to move forward following crime. Restorative Justice provides the tools to start a respectful dialogue that fulfils the needs of victims of crime. It provides a mediated way to make connections and build solidarity within our society following crime. 

Restorative Solutions deliver integrated, whole system services for victims of all crime types and anti-social behaviour.  At RJ Dorset we organise a range of events throughout RJ Week to raise awareness and demonstrate how Restorative Justice can be effective in facilitating victims of crime and offenders to come into communication in a safe, mediated environment.

If you would think Restorative Justice could be helpful for you, please get in touch.

What People Say About Restorative Justice

The facilitators have been wonderful. I feel stronger than I did. I would really recommend Restorative Justice.

Burglary Victim

Thank you for the letter, it has made a real difference to how I feel about what happened

From victim of a criminal damage to vehicle where the offender wanted to write a letter which explained what he had been feeling at the time and how sorry he was now.

Thank you for the letter, it has made a difference to how I feel.

Georgia, Victim of Crime

Thank you for the update, I felt reassured that the offender has apologised and that her behaviour was subject to some reflection and accountability.

Linda, Victim of Crime

He's done what he has been asked to do (apologise for the harm caused) - I'm very happy with that.
