S5W-12110: Liam Kerr (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 23 October 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a list of the service providers of restorative justice.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 3 November 2017

This information is not held centrally. Following on from the recent publication of Guidance for the Delivery of Restorative Justice in Scotland, we will consult on an order under section 5(2) of the Victims and Witnesses Act 2014, to prescribe who must have regard to this guidance. We will also work closely with justice and third sector partners to ensure access to existing services and to develop further provision to meet the needs of victims.
