Restorative Justice meetings are run by our trained facilitators

They come from a variety of professional backgrounds and have all undergone extensive training in restorative justice facilitation. They are also required to attend monthly training and supervision to ensure that their skills are kept up to date.

Last but not least, we employ a manager and an Operations Team to ensure that TRJT runs smoothly and that cases are dealt with promptly and to agreed timeframes.

All members of TRJT are independent of the court processes and seek only to provide an opportunity for victims and offenders to meet in a safe, controlled environment, to talk about what happened and what needs to happen to put things right.
