Welcome to the Restorative Hub

The Restorative Hub is a brand new addition to the Criminal Justice System in County Durham and Darlington, supporting victims and offenders by giving them the chance to communicate in the aftermath of a crime, through a process called Restorative Justice.

Restorative Justice is known to be highly valued by victims as it gives them a voice in the Criminal Justice process and a chance to get the answers or explanation they deserve. There is evidence that it helps victims to cope and recover from the impact of the crime and restores their peace of mind.

Whether you’re a victim of crime, or have you suffered from anti-social behaviour, or a practitioner working to help others, or you may live locally and you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, this website will help you to find out more.
