The RJC is pleased to announce that St Helens Youth Justice Service has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM).

Jon Collins, the RJC’s chief executive, said:

“By successfully completing the RSQM, St Helens Youth Justice Service has demonstrated its commitment to providing the highest standards in restorative justice, and I would like to congratulate the whole team on this achievement.”

The RSQM is a badge of quality that guarantees that a service provides safe, high quality restorative practice which meets the six Restorative Service Standards. St Helens Youth Justice Service joins other RSQM awardees – in sectors ranging from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative processes.

Janine Saleh, St Helens Youth Justice Service’s Safer Communities and Youth Justice Service Manager, said:

“We were really pleased to hear that we had achieved the RSQM as this provided us with reassurance around the quality of the restorative justice work we are delivering. The process has assisted St Helens in many ways and enabled us to think more broadly about restorative practices, such as how we can support victims in complex and sensitive cases.”
