Would you want to meet the offender who attacked you if you became a victim of crime? Or speak to the person who burgled your house, and ask them why?
Restorative Justice provides an opportunity to do that by giving the victim the chance to meet face-to-face with the person who committed the offence and to talk to them about what they did.
The victim can ask them why they were targeted, and tell them about the impact their actions have had on their life. And it also gives the offender a chance to explain why they behaved like they did – which can help victims put the crime behind them and move on with their lives.
