Restorative Justice – Schools & Youth Resources

Why me? have set up the RJ UK project with a vision to introduce young people aged 14 – 19 years old to the concept of Restorative Justice in the British justice system.

These interactive materials produced for the campaign can be used by teachers to align with Curriculum areas of Citizenship KS 3 & 4, (+PSHE Core Theme 1: Health and Well-being) and can also be used as an additional resource for youth practitioners mentoring young people around themes of conflict resolution, justice and societal views towards crime.


Resources are free and currently available in hard copy, please email or download files below.
