Commissioned Restorative Justice Services
Restorative Solutions can provide an end-to-end capability for restorative justice conferencing and other restorative justice outcomes. Our team of experienced Restorative Justice practitioners come from a wide number of agencies such as probation, prisons, police, education, and includes former offenders who have changed their lives following a Restorative Justice intervention.
We will engage with organisations in order to offer a bespoke service for restorative justice conferencing and case management which could include case selection, assessment of suitability, preparatory engagement with participants, post conference support and peer mentoring for offenders prior to and post conference.
Restorative Justice Awareness Seminars
We have significant experience in the development and running of Restorative Justice awareness seminars for a wide range of sectors.
Tailored to meet the specific information needs of each audience, our seminars are designed to inform, educate and demonstrate the wide ranging benefits and advantages of adopting a restorative approach within a given setting.
We are able to draw upon a wealth of experience and insight in terms of speakers/presenters, including:
- Sir Charles Pollard former Chair of the Youth Justice Board and Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police
- John Stevenson a specialist in housing law and anti-social behaviour and former head of the Community Safety Unit at Places for People Homes managing over 3,500 cases per year
- Peter Woolf a former prolific offender relates his experiences of the criminal justice system and how a restorative intervention changed his life
- Gary Stephenson a former Lancashire Constabulary BCU Commander who introduced restorative approaches in policing in his BCU and the Constabulary
Mentoring for Offenders
Peter Woolf is a former offender and now works with offenders on a one-to-one basis mentoring and providing advice, support, guidance and supervision.
Restorative Solutions has extensive experience developing and implementing restorative justice services as a cost effective solution in rehabilitating offenders. We have learnt useful lessons for the successful management of restorative justice services and understand the challenges that will be faced by Tier 1 providers following the introduction of the Transforming Rehabilitation programme. Even well established organisations can find the pressure to deliver, and the many operational challenges, daunting.
We can provide you with the support that you need in defining and selecting effective solutions or services in the areas of accountability, measuring performance, and setting in place a realistic financial strategy. Through our extensive work in making restorative justice available we have built capacity and capability across the sector. Contact us today to arrange a meeting to discuss how Restorative Solutions can help your organisation minimise risk and deliver on your TR commitments." As you can probably see, this is a slightly modified version of the first two paragraphs on the other section. All this will be reviewed by the senior team before going live so they'll see if they want to change anything.
As lead partners in the definition and delivery of the NOMS programme we can support your organisation in the areas of strategic advice, management support and training to prisons, Community Rehabilitation Companies, and the National Probation Service. You can contact us to obtain a copy of the final evaluation report on the NOMS programme, and to discuss how Restorative Solutions can support you in the delivery of high-quality and efficient Offender Services.
