Valuing Victims: A Review of Police and Crime Commissioners’ Funding of Restorative Justice 2013 – 2017

Exclusive analysis into Restorative Justice expenditure throughout England and Wales

Part I    Part II

Valuing Victims 2017:

Less than 5% of victims are made aware of RJ opportunity according to the British Crime Survey 2016. Through running a national survey and hosting a practitioners’ workshop, we have produced a summary of the key findings and a checklist for practitioners working with victims; showcasing case studies and good practice from across England and Wales.

Valuing Victims 2016:

Our campaign reviewed Police and Crime Commissioner (PCCs) expenditure on RJ services since 2013 prior to the PCCs 2016 election. As a result we examined delivery models for RJ services nationally, produced a national map of RJ services and provided the Justice Select Committee with supporting information for their Restorative Justice Inquiry.
