YNJS - Victim/Offender Mediation Circles
Victim/Offender Mediation Circles bring the victim, offender and in some cases other community members together in a neutral environment with a trained mediator to discuss the offending behaviour.
YNJS - Williams Lake Situation Table
Situation Tables (also known as “hubs”) help front-line staff from the public safety, health, and social service sectors identify vulnerable people and collaboratively and rapidly connect them to services before they experience a negative or traumatic event (e.g. victimization, overdose, eviction, etc.).
