Listen to our appeal

On the 9th and 13th of July 2023, Why me? broadcasted a BBC Radio 4 Charity Appeal presented by the fantastic Mel Giedroyc. Mel told listeners how inspired she is by the work of Why me?, and how Restorative Justice transforms the lives of all victims of crime. Read more about Mel’s work with us, as our patron. 


Our appeal told the story of Janika Cartwright, one of Why me?’s lived-experience ambassadors. When Janika was stabbed by her ex-partner, she wanted the chance to face him again to hold him accountable for his actions. Taking part in Restorative Justice transformed her from being a victim to a victor. Listen to our appeal to hear her story, or read it on our story page! You can help more people like Janika to transform their lives through Restorative Justice by donating to our appeal.
