Restorative Justice (RJ) is a way of bringing peace of mind to victims of crime, anti-social behaviour and conflict by allowing them to meet the wrongdoer and explain the consequences of their actions. The wrongdoer can make reparation by apologising and taking other action to recompense the victim for the harm caused.
Coventry has a long history of delivering RJ, yet it is very little known or understood by many people in the city.
This conference, which will be held on 14 November, will explore the benefits of RJ and allow those already delivering it within the city to explain their work. It will help teachers, decision makers, community leaders and members of the public to find out more about RJ and network with people who are already delivering it.
It comes at a key moment in the provision of RJ when the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson is selecting an organisation to deliver RJ throughout the region. He and other members of the West Midlands Strategic Policing and Crime Board will be attending the Conference.
It will include a Q and A session with a panel of practitioners and a debate on the future provision of RJ training and delivery within the city, including sources of funding.
It will be held in Committee Room 2 of Coventry Council House. Light refreshments will be available.
