The Essex Restorative and Mediation Service delivers high quality restorative processes to people across Essex who have experiences conflict. The service holds offenders to account and encourages them to take responsibility for the harm they have caused. Both parties discuss next steps and the perpetrators can use the opportunity to make amends, apologise and rebuild.
Victims are given the chance to explain the impact the crime or conflict has had on them, ask questions of the perpetrator and seek an apology.
We will look for the most appropriate way to facilitate the communication, taking into consideration the views of all involved and working at a pace to suit everyone.
