If you would like to learn more, a member of the Restorative Solutions (RS)
team will meet with you to talk through what has happened. They will seek to understand the details of what happened and the impact that it has had on you.
If you feel that you would like to communicate with, or meet, the offender, RS will try to arrange this. The offender has to agree as well, and to accept responsibility for the harm they have caused, but we will start with finding out what you would like to do.
If the offender does accept responsibility (or pleads guilty if the case is going through the courts), and agrees to communicate with or meet you, the timing of any communication or meeting will still be up to you.
The service is free of charge, and is completely confidential and impartial.
If you, the offender and our team member all agree that it’s right to arrange a meeting then we will organise that. You will be welcome to bring a friend or family member with you to support you, and the offender can do the same.
The meeting will be guided by an RS team member.
It will be held in a neutral, safe place and during the meeting everyone will get to have their say about what happened.
If another type of communication is more suitable RS will help with that. That might be by an exchange of letters; or by their team member meeting you and then meeting the offender separately to ask the questions/tell the offender
what you would like them to know, and then meeting you again to tell you what the offender said.
