The evidence is clear; using restorative justice is effective in reducing reoffending rates by 14%, and 85% of victims find it helpful. Jeremy Wright MP recently launched The Restorative Justice Action Plan for the Criminal Justice System to bring about real change in the use of restorative justice.
This conference is for professional and specialist managers in prison, probation, youth justice, social services and police teams, policy makers and advocacy groups in criminal justice, education, local government responsible for reducing reoffending, supporting victims and offender management.
