The University of Sheffield was commissioned by the Government to evaluate restorative justice in 2001.

Professor Joanna Shapland and her teamevaluated the work of three restorative justice projects involving 374 cases in London, Northumbria and Thames Valley, primarily with adult offenders.

The 374 cases together create a large enough sample for statistically significant evidence. We look at the findings contained in each of the reports here: https://restorativejustice.org.uk/sites/default/files/resources/files/Ministry%20of%20Justice%20evaluation%20of%20restorative%20justice.pdf
