"Restorative justice [in the criminal law] gives victims the chance to meet or communicate with their offenders to explain the real impact of the crime – it empowers victims by giving them a voice. It also holds offenders to account for what they have done and helps them to take responsibility and make amends."  Definition drawn from website of Restorative Justice Council (see below)
