What is the Restorative Service Quality Mark?
The Restorative Justice Council (RJC) is the national membership body for restorative practice. We set evidence-based standards to ensure the quality of restorative service delivery. We assess agencies and individuals against those standards, providing accreditation and quality assurance for the public.
The RJC's Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM) is a quality mark for restorative services who can demonstrate they meet the six Restorative Service Standards.
The Restorative Service Standards describe the minimum requirements needed to provide a safe and effective restorative service. Based on local consultation, the standards allow for flexibility in local delivery models to meet service users' needs.
Achieving the RSQM means a service has been externally accredited against the Restorative Service Standards and will receive the RSQM logo and certificate to promote and celebrate this achievement.
The RSQM is valid for three years.
