Restorative Justice

Volume 699: debated on Wednesday 12 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath on 7 January (WA 178), what resource considerations might prevent the use of restorative justice as a commissioned service of Victim Support Plus. [HL2216]

Victim Support Plus is currently being rolled out across England and Wales. Until that is complete, it is not possible to be clear on what demand there will be for the new range of support services and their impact on resources, including grant funding from the Office for Criminal Justice Reform, funds raised by Victim Support itself, and Victim Support staff and volunteer time.
