About the Organisation

Motivation: 

First introduced to Restorative Justice in 2015, as a way of reducing harm when students were going through a conduct process. Our journey has developed from there, to now shifting the focus from Restorative Justice to Restorative Practice in order to build community.

Brings to the Discussion: 

A multi-disciplinary team where all staff are trained in Restorative Practice and of these, three are trained Restorative practice facilitators. Ongoing programs for inhouse Training and Development to keep up to date with new developments. Over the last five years 60 young people per year have been trained in Restorative Practice.

Additional Information: 

Restorative Practice has been adopted in all areas and relationships are central to our workplace. We aim to embed Restorative Practice in everything we do, from welcome circles to conferencing when things go wrong. This has resulted in the creation of an connected workplace, with a positive culture.
