A Restorative Justice process

£250.00



Belong's restorative justice interventions reduce crime and the harm it causes by enabling victims of crime to communicate safely with those who have caused harm. They assist victims of crime to move on from incidents of harm and empower those who have caused harm to take responsibility for their actions and avoid reoffending. MOJ Research (2008) showed that: 

 

  • Restorative justice leads to a 14% reduction in the rate of reoffending.
  • 85% of victims were satisfied with the process of meeting their offender face to face, and 78% would recommend it to other people in their situation.
  • 62% of victims felt that restorative justice had made them feel better after an incident of crime while just 2% felt it had made them feel worse.
  • For every £1 spent on delivering a face to face meeting, £8 was saved through reductions in reoffending.

Mentors engage people serving sentences, in the community on license or on suspended sentences in practical activities such as CV writing; job interview practice and housing support, as well as family, emotional and relational support such as self-esteem exercises; thinking skills, problem solving and life skills based practice. Mentoring sessions take place for approximately 1 – 2 hours weekly or fortnightly, depending on the mentees needs. Belong’s mentoring services achieved the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation’s Approved Provider Standard quality mark in 2014.

After mentoring: 

 

  • 72% of Belong mentees do not reoffend 

  • 79% improve their emotional and mental health after starting mentoring 

  • 94% report improved relationships 

  • 87% improve their ability to manage money 

  • 81% found that mentoring helped them to access education, training and employment 

  • 70% decrease their use of illegal substances. 

The following are quotes from Belong mentees: 

“We’ll go over what I want to do when I come out, what I’m looking to do. She helped me write a CV... I’ve got someone encouraging me to be more positive” 

He’ll give me a task to do, action plans, so ‘what is your five year action plan?’ and ‘what are you going to do to achieve this goal or that goal?’ He’s pushing me” 

“I think I’m a lot more patient now.... I think chatting to my mentor helped... Before I was just angry or I’d just fight, but now I think I’ve grown up a bit through the course and just through myself”
