Reparation by Offenders
Crispin Blunt (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Prisons and Probation), Justice; Reigate, Conservative)
Restorative justice can only meaningfully take place where the offender admits responsibility and both they, and their victim, are fully able and willing to engage in a restorative process.
The Government's response to the ‘Getting it right for Victims and Witnesses’ consultation will be published shortly. This will set out the additional work we propose to undertake to enhance the roles of, and engagement of victims in restorative justice.
