There is currently enthusiastic exploration of the application of conferencing in a variety of settings beyond police and the courts. For example, the NSW Department of Corrective Services has established a Restorative Justice Unit which offers victim-offender conferencing post-sentence (ie. for imprisoned or paroled offenders); so far it has received 46 referrals and conducted six conferences. Programs are being considered for areas as diverse as youth homelessness, hospital discharge planning, aged care/nursing home care, for the care of the children of women prisoners, and for custody disputes in the Family Court (Swain & Ban 1997). Finally, the use of restorative justice programs in resolving workplace disputes is a growing field (McDonald & Moore forthcoming).
