Despite the growth of restorative justice research, theory and practice, little work has explored its implications for criminal justice social work and probation services. Our analysis demonstrates a restorative justice ‘lens’ transforms the view of criminal justice social work, enlarging the scope to help people make amends for harm, magnifying the role for victims of crime, refocusing on the meaningfulness of reparative acts, and clarifying the role of communities in reintegration. Our vision of restorative justice informed criminal justice social work and probation services offers a way of shifting practice to help people repair harm, make good and move on with their lives.
