National Commission on Restorative Justice Report

Final report published December 2009

Terms of Reference:

‘Consider the application of the concept of Restorative Justice with regard to persons brought before the courts on criminal charges and to make recommendations as to its potential wider application in this jurisdiction including its possible application in the context of community courts…’


National Commission on Restorative Justice Report

  • Commission projects that 5,000-10,000 cases referred by the courts could be considered for Restorative Justice

  • Recommends nationwide implementation no later than 2015

  • Recommends to review and enhance the youth justice measures under the Children Act 2001


WHY RESTORATIVE PRACTICES?


Why Restorative Practices?

  • Roots in Restorative Justice but is enhanced by a preventative model

  • Inter-agency panel meetings

  • Holistic approach to working with young people (inter-agency)


WHAT IS IT?


Restorative Practices

A collaborative and proactive approach to behaviour management


Communication of effective practice

Some people are naturally restorative

  • What makes it work for them?

    - How can their effective practice be shared with others?

    - Can it be learned?


Restorative Practices

Can Provide:

  • An explicit language to describe effective behaviour management

  • A common language across teams and services

  • Evidence to practice


Restorative Practices

The aim of restorative practices is to develop community and to manage conflict and tensions by repairing harm and building relationships.


Traditional Approach

Traditionally when something goes wrong, we ask:

  • What happened?

  • Who is to blame?

  • What punishment or sanction is needed?


Restorative Approach

In a restorative approach when something goes wrong, we ask:

  • What happened?

  • What harm has resulted?

  • What needs to happen to make things right?


Traditional V’s Restorative

  • Restorative

  • Focus on past, present and future

  • Emphasis on resulting harm

  • Deterrence linked to relationships and personal accountability

Traditional
