Victims of crime in East Sussex will now be able to access a range of restorative justice (RJ) services due to the recent opening of a specialist RJ hub in Bexhill.The Bexhill office is one of three multi-agency hubs to open across the county, staffed with RJ specialists from Sussex Police and Victim Support. The other two hubs are in Brighton and Bognor Regis.For some victims of crime the existing criminal justice process is sufficient whilst for others it leaves them feeling frustrated with many unanswered questions. The new RJ hubs will put victims at the heart of the criminal justice system by supporting them on their journey to recovery. This will often involve facilitating a safe and appropriate form of communication between victims of crime and offenders to allow victims get the closure they need in order to move on with their lives.
