Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
Stockport Council Stockport Neighbourhood Restorative Justice Panel (NRJP) project
None
The Safer Stockport Partnership (SSP) approved Phase 2 of this local Neighbourhood Restorative Justice Panel pilot project to operate from 1st October 2013 to 31st March 2015. This followed a successful first phase of delivery as one of the areas selected to take part in a National Ministry of Justice ‘Test’ of NJP’s. The project is jointly delivered by Stockport Council and Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) and we are looking to commission an evaluation of Phase 2.

Project aims

The project aims to:

·         Successfully deliver a community restorative justice approach to all localities within the Borough of Stockport
·         Reduce demand on public sector services (including Police, Council services, Housing providers etc.) by offering an alternative voluntary option to address low level crime, ASB and neighbour disputes
·         Successfully recruit, train and retain a minimum of 20 Volunteers to support delivery
·         Achieve longer term, more sustainable outcome agreements by the ‘harmer’ and ‘harmed’ parties taking part in the process
·         Become firmly established as a vital alternative tool to address crime and ASB in the Borough
·         Encourage key local stakeholders to invest in the project (referrals, finance and other resources) to support an ultimate aim for independent delivery by a 3rd sector/Voluntary organisation
·         Support the Public Sector Reform work being carried out across the Borough.

Work undertaken throughout the evaluation will include:

·         Assessment of stakeholder engagement
·         Assessment of user satisfaction
·         Analysis of SoRT-IT case data collated during phase 2 (e.g. no. of successful referrals; no. of inappropriate referrals; no. of successful outcomes; no of parties who benefited from the service etc
·         Cost benefit analysis (e.g. spend to save ratios re SoRT-IT cost v Criminal Justice and related costs)
·         Social benefit analysis (e.g. customer satisfaction surveys – short and long term)
·         Assessment of stakeholder satisfaction and willingness/ability to invest in the future
·         Highlight areas of good practice and areas for improvement
·         Recommendations for future delivery
·         Recommendations around sustainability as Community Interest Company (CIC) potential

The overall objective is to produce an evaluation framework which clearly sets out the agreed purpose, aims, objectives, outputs, outcomes and impacts of the project.
