The MoJ supports the provision of good quality, victim-focussed Restorative Justice as one of a range of measures to help victims cope and, where possible, recover from crime.

We continue to work with Police and Crime Commissioners and the Restorative Justice Council to support effective delivery of RJ services for victims and to assess progress.

We noted in our written evidence to the Justice Select Committee the good progress made against the current action plan. As my Right Honourable and Learned Friend for North Hertfordshire stated at the recent Westminster Hall Debate on Restorative Justice, we will publish the progress report in due course.
