As part of the pre-accreditation inspection CJI reviewed case files an documentation and sought the views of clients, statutory bodies including the police, local politicians, community leaders and others on the work Resolve was undertaking and the contribution it was making to the local community.
 
Resolve, the Chief Inspector said, was complying with its obligations under human rights legislation including the rights of the child and the UN Principles Restorative Justice.
 
"While we have made a number of recommendations to improve operational practice, It is our view Resolve currently meets the standard expected of non-governmental organisations that work with the criminal justice sector.
 
"It is suitable to proceed to the second stage of the accreditation process and have its staff considered by the Suitability Panel, where the ultimate decision on accreditation under the Government Protocol rests," said Mr McGuigan.
