How RJ has helped victims to cope and to recover

Restorative Justice works and we have many testimonies from people who have been through the process and found it to be very positive. Case studies and quotes from both victims and offenders can be seen below.

Will this affect the sentence the offender gets?

If a case goes to court, then sentencing is always up to the Judge. Restorative Justice is not an alternative to sentencing. The Judge is the only person who can decide on the appropriate sentence for the crime that the offender has committed.
