Mapping report of restorative justice provision in England and Wales – 2016
Completed in March 2016 and conducted by the Institute for Criminal Policy and Research (ICPR), a mapping exercise surveyed criminal justice agencies and organisations involved in restorative justice provision in England and Wales. Supported by the Ministry of Justice, and with the help of the National Offender Management Service and the Youth Justice Board, the survey was disseminated among a wide range of stakeholders.
Well Springs took part in this mapping exercise and the results for Bedfordshire are noted below extract courtesy of (RJC Report of a mapping exercise of restorative justice provision in England & Wales for the Restorative Justice Council March 2016)
· The RJC received four responses from agencies covering Bedfordshire:
Bedfordshire PCC ·
· Bedfordshire Youth Offending Service ·
· Luton Youth Offending Service ·
· Well Springs Community Services
Bedfordshire PCC completed the support/facilitative section of the survey and stated that it supports RJ, but did not provide details about the RJ services it facilitates. Well Springs is part of the Bedfordshire Victims partnership and is funded by the PCC, they do not know whether this funding will continue beyond March 2016. Bedfordshire and Luton Youth Offending Services provide RJ activities as part of their core service.
