RAFT Restorative Actions for Transformation

Crime Impact Session (CIS)

This is a facilitated conversation with a young offender pre or post sentence when a dialogue with victim is not possible. This one time session is designed to build empathy in the offender by raising awareness and understanding of the impact of the offending behaviour on the offender and family, the victim and family as well as the broader community.

The Crime Impact Program explores triggers to the offending actions so as to develop strategies to prevent further criminal behaviour. Where possible, the Crime Impact Program gives the opportunity for the offender to complete a letter of apology to the victim.
