Guidance and other resources

The Restorative Justice Council (RJC) has produced resources that underpin and inform our standards and support the delivery of high quality restorative practice.  

The RJC Practitioners Handbook is for practitioner members to help support them in the delivery of high quality restorative services and the development of their professional practice.  

The RJC Trainers Handbook is for trainer members to help support them in delivering high quality restorative training both to practitioners and those seeking to learn about restorative approaches.

The RJC Service Providers Handbook is for service provider members to help support them in the delivery of high quality restorative services and the development of their practitioners.

The RJC’s Principles of Restorative Processes form the underpinning ethical framework for restorative practice.  

The RJC's Restorative Justice Principles in a Schools Setting is based on the Principles of Restorative Processes and sets out the application of the Principles in schools.

The National Occupational Standards (NOS) are statements of good practice which relate to functions carried out in the workplace. They describe what an individual needs to do, know and understand in order to carry out a particular job role or function. NOS for restorative practice have been published by Skills for Justice, the skills sector body. The RJC was a key partner in the development of the NOS.
