In feedback, 94 per cent of attendees said that following the conference they were more, or much more, likely to refer someone for restorative justice.

Mr Lane said: ‘It is important that victims are not automatically excluded because of the type of harm they have experienced, but that decisions are based on the wishes of the individuals involved.’
