Development of an adult restorative justice strategy ni

Consultation opened on 22 June 2020. Closing date 11 September 2020.


The Department of Justice (DOJ) is conducting a consultation exercise to obtain views on the proposed development of an adult restorative justice strategy for Northern Ireland


Consultation description

The Department is seeking your views on the development of an Adult Restorative Justice Strategy for Northern Ireland.  Whilst restorative justice is used extensively in the youth justice arena, there is currently no comprehensive or strategic approach to its use for adults. 

We are therefore conducting this consultation to obtain your views on the establishment of a strategic approach to using restorative practices at all stages of the adult criminal justice system.
