Information evening for people interested in becoming RJ facilitators
Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley (CLWHV) is the current provider of restorative justice services in the Hutt Valley, Porirua and Wellington District Courts.
We would like to invite those interested in becoming Restorative Justice Facilitators (for standard and/or family violence referrals) to join us for a friendly information and Q&A session on Thursday the 12th March 2015.
We’ll address common questions like:
What sort of cases go to restorative justice? How can I be involved? How does it work? Is there training? How do I apply? What do you pay? What about RJ in family violence cases?
Restorative justice is a process that brings together someone who has been harmed, and the person that caused that harm. It provides an opportunity for them to meet in a safe environment and talk about what happened, what the impacts of that have been, and how things might be “put right”. The process is victim-centred and completely voluntary for all parties.
Currently CLWHV’s work in restorative justice is across standard and family violence charges in the district courts. Restorative Justice in cases of sexual offending is currently overseen by a national provider, Project Restore
