Who should apply for our Restorative Service Provider Registration?
A Restorative Service Provider is normally a commissioned service or provider who accepts external referrals and delivers both direct and indirect restorative processes.
Why should I apply for Registration?
As a Registered Service Provider, you will be demonstrating that your organisation is committed to delivering high quality restorative practice to nationally agreed standards.
The RJC Restorative Service Provider Registration Framework
This Framework sets out how restorative service providers should work. We have been careful to ensure that it does not constrain practice or hamper creativity and the need for services to develop and exercise their professional judgement. This Framework has been designed to be flexible so that it applies across different types of restorative practice without being overly prescriptive.
The Framework is broken into six performance indicators with each indicator consisting of a number of standards which outline the requirements organisations are required to evidence.
1 - Leadership
1.1 - Building a restorative community
1.2 - Embedding restorative practice within strategic and operational planning
1.3 - Processes are in place to evaluate the impact of restorative practice

The Registration Process
Services applying for registration are required to submit a portfolio of evidence demonstrating how they meet our registration standards. The service's portfolio consists of 3 key elements:
- An Evidence Record and supporting documentation
- Registration Supporting Commentary
- A Signed copy of the Restorative Service Provider Code of Practice
Each of the practitioners you are registering as part of your application will also need to produce a portfolio of evidence which consists of:
- An Evidence Record and supporting documentation
- A Practitioner Supporting Statement
- Practitioner Supporting Commentary
- Mandatory Case Studies
- A signed copy of the Practitioner Code of Practice
Upon receipt of your Registration Application, you will be provided with a copy of the RJC's Registered Service Provider Application Guidance. This document includes applicant guidance and evidence requirements against each indicator.
Once you have gathered your organisational and practitioner evidence you will need to submit your portfolio for assessment. Your assessor will review the documentation provided and may contact you or your practitioners to request additional evidence, or to arrange a suitable time to discuss the evidence provided. You will receive an assessment report from your assessor which will outline whether your application for registration has been successful. If you are awarded Registered status, your organisation will be added to our Practice Register and you will receive you Registered Service Provider certificate and logos. If your application is unsuccessful, your assessor will tell you why this is the case.
