The Government have invested £5 million in the crime reduction programme restorative justice pilots and their evaluation. These pilots delivered restorative justice at all stages of the criminal justice system and to both juveniles and adults. The second (of four) research reports was published in February 2006, 'Restorative justice in practice—findings from the second phase of the evaluation of three schemes', Home Office Research Findings No 274. This report found that victims were prepared to participate in the restorative justice process and that victim participation was very high where cases involved young offenders. The third research report on victim and offender satisfaction is expected to be published later this year.
