This contact is usually initiated over the phone and includes individuals who may be the victim or perpetrator of all crime types from Theft to Murder. Your role will involve supporting individuals in the community and in prisons, through the Restorative Justice process and you will work with them to enable them to communicate effectively with each other in a final face to face meeting, ensuring risk assessing takes place throughout the whole process and final meeting. This process helps reduce reoffending and enables individuals to move forward from what has happened. It can be facilitated through a face to face meeting or by acting as a go-between to pass messages between each party this could be verbally or in the form of a letter.
