Restorative justice – vandalism
Crime Concern Uk were commissioned by Sanctuary Housing to undertake restorative justice between a young resident and other members of the community. The main issues had been ones of damage and graffiti in the area.
Through restorative justice the members of the community agreed on suitable reparations for the young person which included cleaning and tidying gardens in the area and low level maintenance of fences etc.
The conclusion to the session was that the relationship had been rebuilt between the parties and that the community were happy as they had felt involved in the decision for reparations.
