Volunteers wanted to join Essex’s Restorative Justice and Mediation team.

DO you have a passion for helping others and promoting positive change in your community?

The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex is looking for more volunteers to join the Restorative Justice and Mediation team.

As a Restorative Justice volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to facilitate dialogue and help create a safe space for individuals affected by conflict to share their stories, rebuild relationships, and find closure.An image of two people shaking hands.

Roger Hirst, Police Fire and Crime Commissioner said: “Restorative Justice can be effective in showing the responsible person the real impact of their actions by putting a face to their crime. It also gives the victim and their families the chance to tell the offender how they feel about what has happened, ask for an apology and get answers to their questions.

“We use it alongside the criminal justice system and can be powerful for both victims and perpetrators.

“I’m proud of the team and the volunteers and the difference they make to people’s lives.”

If you’re interested in the role and have some questions, there is an online Q and A drop-in session being run by the team on the 2nd of June at 12pm. Email restorativejustice@essex.police.uk for more details.
