In 2006, a group of forward thinking residents launched Fairview Community Restorative Justice as a committee of the Fairview & Area Well Community Action Association. Since then we have been facilitating forums and spreading the word about RJ through stories of our successes and challenges.
These forums have been held to facilitate a community driven response to crime. The dignity of victims have been upheld and offenders have successfully made amends in almost all cases.
