RJ4All accepts referrals and self-referrals for restorative justice cases. We provide both online and face-to-face restorative justice as well as direct and indirect practices.

We work with all criminal and youth justice agencies as well as individuals (families, groups, harmed and harming parties), and can intervene at any stage in and beyond the criminal and youth justice systems. We can consider a wide range of cases whether these have been reported or not (examples: family conflicts, neighbourhood disputes, anti-social behaviour, personal and property violence, domestic abuse, hate incidents, youth violence, theft).

Our goals

Return conflict to affected parties; empower, restore & reintegrate.

Strengthen community-based restorative justice & build stronger networks with formal structures.

Deliver safe, high- quality restorative justice that is led by affected parties & evaluated.

Improve both the experience and sense of justice for harmed and harming parties, addressing inequalities & power abuse.

RJ4All is a safe space where quality & not quantity matters!

The RJ4All Restorative Justice casework journey

At RJ4All, we do not compromise quality, nor do we ever “process” cases in the interest of numbers! Every case is different and treated with as much care and attention as any other case. 

To this end, we have established the “RJ4All Restorative Justice casework journey” making it clear to our team and service users what to expect. This journey maps every step that we will take from the minute a case is reported or self reported to us. 

There are four stages in this journey and a total of 18 steps: (1) Referral Stage (2) Preparatory Stage (3) Encounter Stage (4) Follow-up Stage. 

RJ4All does not favourite one restorative justice practice over another. The choice is in the parties, and we are able to deliver:

    • Direct interventions (victim-offender mediation, family group conferencing, circles) 
    • Indirect interventions (letters, virtual meetings).

This journey and referral form relates to restorative justice case work only. If you require any other service such as our therapeutic and mental health support including our well-being circles, please follow this link

When can a referral be made?

We accept referrals for a wide range of cases. This includes any event or situation, where individuals believe they have been harmed or may have caused harm. If the incident has been reported and thus entered the justice system, we will accept cases within the remit of the Crime and Disorder Act (for juveniles) and the Criminal Justice Act (for adults).

To qualify, we expect the person who is being referred to have consented to take part in our programmes. We work across all age groups including young people. 

Referrals can be made at any point in time. This can be: 

  • Before or after the incident is reported (or has not been reported)
  • Before and after a case goes through court 
  • Before or after an individual went to prison. 

There is no limit in time after an event has occurred to deliver restorative justice. Even 20 or 50 years later! If you are not sure regarding the suitability, do email us at referral@RJ4All.org

Who can refer to us and how?

Self-referral 

If you feel you have been part of an event that caused harm either to yourself or to another, you can submit a self-referral to us:

If there is a case / reported crime: You can ask the agencies in charge of your case to make the referral for you on our form (they have an obligation to do so if requested) – This can be your probation officer, police, etc. 

If there is no case / reported crime: Please fill out our referral form below. 

Referral

Agencies from within the criminal justice system can submit a referral. This includes court, Crown Prosecution Service, HM Prison Services, and Probation Services. This can be at any point during the process (before or after a crime is reported), before and after a case goes through court, and before or after an individual went to prison.

 

Organisations outside of the criminal justice system can also make referrals (GP, health staff, support services).
