What Are Restorative Justice Services Recording?
Posted on: 13th, April 2023
Restorative Solutions recently contributed to a peer-reviewed, academic article about Restorative Service providers, titled ‘What Are Restorative Justice Services Recording? Qualitative Analysis of Six Restorative Justice Reporting Templates for Offices of the Police and Crime Commissioner in England’.
Researched and written by PhD researcher Benjamin Fisk, the work outlines the investigation and findings of a documentary analysis of six Police and Crime Commissioner RJ reporting templates. Through our work with the All-Party Parliamentary Group, and in agreement with a number of our commissioners, Restorative Solutions provided information used in the analysis.
Praise for Restorative Solutions
The author praised the services involved for our transparency; “It is a testament to any service that is willing to be transparent and open its processes up to analysis and potential scrutiny by an outside party. For that… these services should be applauded.”
He went on to highlight the complexity of Restorative Justice, “The templates themselves are singular documents which touch upon the vast amount of important work undertaken by practitioners and cannot capture the rich, transformative, and emotional detail of restorative work, nor that of those tasked with compiling these templates.”
