Cumbria and Lancashire CRC works to rehabilitate offenders and supports victims of crime through Restorative Justice (RJ) Services. We’ve been providing structured support to people affected by crime for more than 25 years. As part of this service, we work in partnership with other agencies to bring together people affected by crime.
Restorative Justice gives victims a voice in the criminal justice system and an opportunity to ask questions and receive an explanation from the person who committed the crime. For the offender, it gives them an opportunity to empathise with their victim, show remorse and take responsibility for the harm they have caused.
Restorative Justice could involved a carefully planned face to face meeting, known as a conference, or an exchange of letters.
