Have you been a victim of crime?

The process - what happens next?

Being a victim of crime can be a very upsetting experience and may leave you with a lot of anger, frustration and unanswered questions.

A restorative process enables you to let the person who committed the offence against you know the true impact of their crime, get answers to your questions and, in some cases, receive an apology.

Many victims we work with appreciate their views being taken into account and welcome the chance to have some involvement in the overall process.

This is why we are working hard to ensure that more victims know about the benefits of restorative justice and have the opportunity to try it for themselves.

  • If you have been a victim of crime and think you would like the opportunity to discuss what happened to you and how it has affected you, please contact the Surrey Restorative Justice Hub to discuss how we may be able to assist you.
  • You can contact us via phone: 01372 371611 or email: rjhub@surreycc.gov.uk.

From there, a trained restorative facilitator will contact you to discuss what has happened and what you think you may need  in order to help you move forward. We will look into your situation and do some background work to assess the most helpful way forward. Restorative practice is very much about listening so we will be guided by you as to what you need, whilst ensuring everyone feels included and safe in the process.
