Victims of crime are invited to find out more about the support and help available to them when a roadshow comes to Corby next week.

Corby Council is working in partnership with Groundwork Northamptonshire to show Corby’s support in restorative justice.

Restorative justice allows victims to meet or communicate with their offender to explain the real impact of the crime, which is part of a wider field called restorative practice.

To coincide with Restorative Justice Week, which takes place from November 15 to November 22, Groundwork will be taking full advantage with a restorative justice roadshow set to target the whole county.

There will be an informative display in the reception area of the Cube in George Street, Corby, on Friday, November 20, with members of Corby Council’s community safety team supporting Groundwork Northamptonshire, who will speak to people and answer any questions they may have around restorative justice.

Corby Council leader, Cllr Tom Beattie, said: “Restorative justice is something that some people may not know about, or maybe aren’t sure who to go to for help.

“The roadshow is something that Corby Borough Council is more than happy to support if it means that more people are able to get some help and advice, and hopefully in the end, some closure on past events.

“If this is something that you think could benefit you or someone you know, please don’t hesitate to come along and get some more information around the programme.”
