The Restorative Justice (Prescribed Persons) (Scotland) Order 2021

On 22 January 2021 The Restorative Justice (Prescribed Persons) (Scotland) Order 2021 was laid before the Scottish Parliament to give Restorative Justice guidance a statutory basis, so that prescribed people must have regard to it. It’s a piece of secondary legislation (SSI) connected to the implementation of the Victims and Witnesses (Scotland) Act and is something which we support. We look forward to details on how Restorative Justice will be be introduced across Scotland by 2023, as previously advised in the Restorative Justice Action Plan.
