Restorative Justice Service

What is restorative justice?

Restorative justice (RJ) gives those affected by crime and conflict the opportunity to communicate with those involved in an offence or incident. It gives victims a voice and holds offenders to account for the harm they have caused, enabling everyone to find a positive way forward.

Restorative justice is...

confidential and impartial.
a safe space.
separate from any legal proceedings.

About our RJ Service

Since 2005 we have been providing restorative justice (RJ) throughout London. Over the years we have partnered with The Big Lottery, Victim Support and the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).

We are a member of the Restorative Justice Council (RJC) and have held the Restorative Service Quality Mark since 2016. Our team trains and supports a panel of RJ facilitators, all of whom meet DBS and RJC practitioner criteria.

“I would like to congratulate Calm Mediation and their Registered Practitioners on this achievement. Being awarded Registered Status demonstrates the team are facilitating high quality, safe and effective restorative practice. Those considering accessing restorative justice can be confident that they will be supported by highly skilled practitioners.” - James Simon, RJC Chief Executive Officer

Does restorative justice work?

RJ reduces the frequency of re-offending by 14%.

Crime victims who receive restorative justice do better, on average, than victims who do not, across a wide range of outcomes, including post-traumatic stress.

85% of victims who took part in RJ meetings with offenders were satisfied with the process.

In many tests, offenders who receive restorative justice commit fewer repeat crimes than offenders who do not.

78% would recommend it to other people in their situation.
