THE RESTORATIVE PHILOSOPHY:
Is, in essence, that the negative effects that people and incidences have on other people are not primarily issues of criminality or personal deficiency, but issues of interpersonal human relationships.
Holds that harmful actions, above all, damage interpersonal relationships.
Directly involve people affected by harmful acts in healing the practical and the emotional harm and seek to address that harm with healing.
VARJ acknowledges and respects the history, culture, diversity and values of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
