Restorative justice practices should not be treated like a commodity
from the article by John Lash on Juvenile Justice Information Exchange: ….The hard part of establishing a restorative system is making connections and getting agreements from the various stakeholder groups. In our case this includes the court, the Department of Juvenile Justice, the police, and several other players. Once these connections are in place, any number of approaches will work to bring together offenders, victims and community members. In our case all of these facets are in place. We only need money to train facilitators and cover our expenses. None of the governmental entities we are engaged with have any money to spare, so we have been seeking grant funding.

How to get ahead in ... youth offending services
from the article by Debbie Andalo in the Guardian: The shape of the youth offending service is changing as it tackles deep spending cuts from both councils and the Youth Justice Board, its main sources of funding. Last year the annual grant paid to youth offending teams was slashed by almost 20%, and the board has just confirmed that another 7% will be shaved off this year's award. Shrinking budgets have prompted teams across England to look at how they can deliver the same level of service with less money. They are coming up with different solutions. In January, three West London boroughs – Hammersmith and Fulham, the City of Westminster, and Kensington and Chelsea – launched a tri-borough youth offending service. Each council still has its own dedicated team, but court services, restorative justice and business support are shared.
