Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. This will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Community Justice Scotland (CJS) and The Children’s and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) have created an animation clip on behalf of the Scottish Government. The animation aims to raise awareness of Restorative Justice (RJ) in a Scottish context. The purpose of this survey is to measure the impact of the animation clip in raising awareness. This will be done by assessing your baseline awareness of RJ, showing you an animation clip and asking you to complete a follow up survey.

This survey is anonymous and the results will be compiled into a report for the Scottish Government to establish if the animation clip was successful in raising awareness of RJ. This will be published on the Scottish Government RJ stakeholder website, relevant RJ newsletters and annual reports for the stakeholder group.

It may not be appropriate to complete this survey if you, or someone close to you has recently been involved and/or affected by crime and/or harm. For example, it may be too overwhelming to complete if you, or someone you know is involved in criminal proceedings, or have been in the past. In addition, the impact and trauma of crime and/or harm can be long-lasting and this subject matter may evoke emotions that can be distressing. It should be noted that this survey is voluntary and you have the option to stop completing it at any stage.    

If you still wish to proceed with this survey and feel you need further support, you will find contact details for organisations at the end.
