Founded in 1998, CRJI aspires to build a tolerant, responsive, and inclusive community by providing restorative justice services to local areas.
Restorative justice is a process that brings together those most directly impacted by a harm—including the victim, the offender, and the community—to generate solutions to the problems affecting them. The process focuses on empowering individuals to share their experiences, identifying their needs, and developing solutions that repair harm. Through such encounters, individuals can generate understanding, uphold accountability, and make amends.
At CRJI, we instil a restorative philosophy to all of our work, and strive to empower the community with the skills and support it needs to tackle an assortment of issues. We seek to provide safe, confidential, and fair services to everyone in our areas, and prepare individuals to resolve the problems affecting their quality of life. CRJI aims to achieve positive outcomes for all parties involved, and continues to support parties after solutions have been reached.
CRJI provides services at no cost to participants. Our qualified practitioners ensure a safe and structured setting for those who engage in our programmes. We have been accredited by the Department of Justice since 2008.
CRJI provides a range of accredited services to local communities, including victim support services, youth mentoring services, advice services, intervention services, and mediation services.
