The RJC is delighted to announce that Avon and Somerset Restorative Justice Partnership; Somerset Service has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM).

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said: “I would like to congratulate all of the staff in the Avon and Somerset Restorative Justice Partnership on their success. This is a fantastic achievement which demonstrates their strong commitment to delivering high standards in safe and effective restorative practice.”

The RSQM is a badge of quality that demonstrates that a service provides safe, high quality restorative practice which meets the six Restorative Service Standards. These organisations join other RSQM awardees – in sectors ranging from criminal justice through education to care – who are guaranteed to deliver high quality restorative processes.

Claire McFadden, the service’s restorative justice coordinator said: “The RSQM is a great learning tool for development and quality assurance, and it gives your service, as well as service users, the confidence that good quality restorative justice is being delivered.

“Achieving the RSQM has been a combined effort and it is fantastic to know that all the hard work has paid off and we can be proud of our service. We hope this helps us to raise awareness of restorative justice and encourages more victims to engage.”
