In this accesible paper, Restorative Justice Coordinator Yvette O’Donnell shares a summary of key findings from consultation work undertaken with different groups of children, to explore their understanding of, and opinions on, Restoarative Justice.
The information provided here is the result of several sessions with two groups of children from Drumchapel High school and one group of children and young people from
the G15 Youth Group. The sessions were led by CYCJ’s Participation Worker who used creative and fun activities tosupport the children to engage.
Where possible we’ve kept their language the same, and if there were any differences of opinion within / between the groups, this is also reflected. The purpose of these sessions (and this
paper) is to provide current feedback from children and young people on Restorative Justice and how it should be carried out.
