Victims Minister Responds to RJ4All: Victims’ Right to Restorative Justice

Press Release

For Immediate Release

On 3rd May 2024, the Minister for Victims and Safeguarding, Laura Farris MP, responded to RJ4All’s concerns and recommendations, as these had been raised in RJ4All’s Open Letter to Lord Bellamy. The RJ4All International Institute is preparing a thorough response to the Minister’s letter, which we will be sharing in due course. 

The government’s key points can be summarised as below:

“Clearly, there are some ‘wins’ for restorative justice and victims, but still a long way to go. RJ4All has worked closely with all parties to put evidence-based arguments forward, and we will continue to do so in consultation with restorative justice practitioners, harmed and harming parties. Progress is process, not an outcome, and I want to thank all Peers, MPs and individuals who supported our campaign so far”.

Professor Theo Gavrielides, PhD
