The RJC is pleased to announce that North Tyneside Youth Offending Team has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM).

Chris Straker, the RJC’s interim chief executive, said:

“Congratulations to everyone at North Tyneside Youth Offending Team for their hard work and dedication. This award reflects their commitment to high quality restorative practice.”

The RSQM is a badge of quality that guarantees that a service provides safe, high quality restorative practice which meets the six Restorative Service Standards. North Tyneside Youth Offending Team joins other RSQM awardees – in sectors ranging from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative processes.

Pete Xeros, manager of the North Tyneside Youth Offending Team, said:

“I’m really proud that the work of the service and effort of the team has been acknowledged. The process has helped us develop our process for evaluating the victim experience and how best to use this to better inform practice development.”

“I would encourage organisations consider applying for this as the whole process is an excellent way to really focus and evaluate how your service is delivering services and how to improve.”
