Restorative justice report launch
Keep an eye out in October for the CIJ's report on our pilot of restorative justice conferencing for serious driving offences.
It’s an exciting time for our work in restorative justice, with the impending launch in October of the report on our project on restorative justice for serious driving offences, as well as an important new initiative that we will release details of shortly.
The project, funded by the Legal Services Board, involved designing a model for restorative justice conferencing available to people affected by motor vehicle collisions that resulted in death or serious injury in Victoria, where the offending driver was an adult.
During the project, 15 referrals were accepted into the program for restorative justice processes, with overwhelming support from stakeholders including Victoria Police, the Office of Public Prosecutions, those who work directly with victims of crime, and victims themselves.
The project will be launched by the Honourable Ben Carroll, Minister for Victims and Corrections, at RMIT’s Capitol Theatre on Thursday 24 October at 10am.
