Reparation by Offenders

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN HL4926, tabled on 19 January 2023

To ask His Majesty's Government how many restorative justice services they plan to have set up by the end of 2023, broken down by the location of those services.

Answered on

2 February 2023

The Ministry of Justice is more than quadrupling funding for victim and witness support services by 2024/25, up from £41m in 2009/10.

This includes grant funding for Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to commission local practical, emotional, and therapeutic support services for victims of all crime types. It is at the PCCs’ discretion to allocate this funding for local services, based on their assessment of local need, which could include Restorative Justice services.

We collect data and information from PCCs on funding activities and impact on a bi-annual basis, throughout the financial year; we therefore do not yet have any data for 2023.
