A trained restorative justice practitioner work with the child and the victim to develop a bespoke agreement or youth restorative intervention contract. The youth restorative intervention contract allows for increased victim satisfaction, reduced costs and reduced reoffending. When the crime has no identifiable primary victim, the youth restorative intervention is used to encourage children to consider the harm caused and those affected by the harm.
