Victims of crime will have a greater chance to get answers from offenders under a new partnership between Merseyside’s Police Commissioner and two leading charities.
Jane Kennedy has set up a partnership with Merseyside’s Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) and a not-for-profit community interest company Restorative Solutions.
She said: “I am keen to support any measure that allows the voice of victims to be heard and helps those affected by crime to reach a sense of closure that sometimes cannot be found in sentencing alone.
“Restorative justice approaches are just one of the ways we can do that.
“Restorative justice gives victims a voice and the opportunity to get answers.”
The project is expected to be launched later this year.
