Examples of restorative justice processes and programmesVictim Offender Mediation (VOM)The victim and offender may be given the opportunity to meet in a safe and structured setting to engage in a discussion about the crime committed against the victim with the assistance of a trained mediator. The victim participates in the process on a voluntary basis from the beginning to the end of the VOM. The mediator merely facilitates the discussion which encourages the offender to learn about the crime’s impact and to take responsibility for harm caused by the offence. The process allows the victim and offender the opportunity to develop a plan that addresses the harm.Family and Victim Offender Group Conferencing (FGC and VOC)This process brings together the victim, offender, and family, friends and key supporters of both in deciding how to address the aftermath of the crime. This aims to afford the victim an opportunity to be directly involved in responding to the crime, increasing the offender’s awareness of the impact of his or her behaviour and providing an opportunity to take responsibility for it. The offender’s support system is engaged for making amends and shaping the offender’s future behaviour. The term Family Group Conferencing is usually specifically used in relation to child offenders.Dialogue, Peace and Sentencing CirclesThese are Restorative Justice Processes designed to develop consensus among the stakeholders including victims, victim supporters, community members, offenders, offender supporters, judicial officers/judges, prosecutors, defence counsel, police and court workers on an appropriate outcome that addresses the concerns of all interested parties. These processes promote healing of all affected parties, giving the offender the opportunity to make amends. It gives the victims, offenders, family members and communities a voice and shared responsibility in finding constructive resolutions, addressing underlying causes of criminal behaviour, and building a sense of community around shared community values.
