Our Story

There are many different providers of restorative justice in New Zealand. Each group provides services to a particular court or courts. The Restorative Justice Trust (TRJT) offers restorative justice services to the Thames Coromandel, Western Bay of Plenty and Waikato regions.

TRJT is a Registered Charity and was established as the Tauranga Moana Restorative Justice Trust in 2004.  The Trust is governed by a voluntary Board made up of people with a strong range of skills and different perspectives. We try to ensure that the Board contains people with experience supporting victims and offenders as well as dedicated seats for Tangata Whenua nominated by the Police Māori Advisory Group.
