What RAMP attempts to achieve is to bring people and
resources together in an effort to repair the harm that was
caused with the commission of an offence. The process is
a practical alternative to the formal court process.
Every file at RAMP is handled by a Community Justice
Facilitator from the program who acts as a neutral party
and facilitates the process.
There are procedures in place to ensure that the victim is
considered, is offered the opportunity to participate, and
receives maximum possible satisfaction from the process.
If a victim decides against or is unable to participate, a
surrogate victim volunteer may represent them. Having
surrogate victim participation helps ensure the facilitator’s
neutrality during the restorative justice process and provides
community input. – less
