Implementing restorative justice in children's residential care

Carol Hayden


Restorative justice (RJ) and restorative approaches (RAs) are becoming increasingly valued as a way of responding to a wide range of conflicts, including problem behaviour and offending behaviour. The growth in the use of RJ and RAs has been described as a ‘global social movement’ that sets out to repair harm, reduce conflict and harmonise civil society. This report takes a close look at the implementation of an RJ approach in the challenging environment of children's residential care homes.

Keywords: restorative justice, restorative approaches, residential care, children, young people, problem behaviour, offending behaviour
