The Restorative Justice Victim Satisfaction Survey measures victims’ experiences of, and satisfaction with Ministry of Justice-funded restorative justice processes.
What is restorative justice?
Restorative justice is a community-based approach to responding to crime that aims to hold offenders to account for their offending and, to the extent possible, repair the harm caused to the victims and community. It aims to give victims a voice in the criminal justice system and may enable them to receive answers, apologies and reparation. Participation in restorative justice is voluntary, and usually involves a facilitated face-to face meeting between the victim and offender.
