The Monument Trust: awarded Juvenile Justice Without Borders International Award 2020

The Monument Trust: Juvenile Justice Without Borders International Award

The Monument Trust has been awarded a Juvenile Justice Without Borders International Award for its extensive philanthropic work from 1965 to 2018. 

The International Juvenile Justice Observatory commended the Monument Trust for contributing to the strengthening of crime prevention and the enhancement and promotion of diversion, restorative justice, innovative approaches for care, education and training during custody, and strategies for supporting social reintegration, among other aspects of juvenile justice. 

 The Monument Trust is now closed and The Monument Fellowship, managed by the Woolbeding Charity works to take forward the Trust’s legacy. 

The Fellowship consists of: Restorative Solutions CIC, Centre for Justice Innovation, Lemos and Crane: The Good Prison, Khulisa, Diagrama Foundation UK, Clinks, Koestler Arts and the NCJAA.

Mark Woodruff, Social Development Grants Programme Manager at The Monument Trust (1999-2018)

“The Trustees made it their explicit aim to keep young people out of prison and, if they do err, to ensure they never go back. For the next 20 years and more, Monument stepped up our investment in scores of projects, programmes and research in action, to improve on what prisons can do positively and how to put things right after, and even better, to reanimate the older wisdom of prevention; and motivating people all the way through, with a higher vision of how their future could be.”

What people say about Restorative Solutions

I'm so glad I am working with RJ. I don't know who would listen to me if it wasn’t for you.
A Person Harmed by Crime
RJ is very underrated and I certainly think we should be using it more.
A Professional who Referred Someone into our Service
Very satisfied – it’s been a great service. A worthwhile process for me and I hope for the offenders. Staff have been great and I would like to thank them.
A victim
It was the right thing to do. Both victims told me to let go of what happened. I didn't want to hear it but they both forgave me and said I should move on. I have taken that on and thought about it and I have come to terms with what happened. You've helped me significantly. It's as though my head has been lifted of a gigantic weight.
An Offender
Thanks for your time today. I feel like you understand R so well, I really hope you can help him to learn how to be happy.
Feedback from a family in East Kent
Restorative Justice offers a unique opportunity for victims and survivors to move on from and overcome the trauma that can be left with them after experiencing crime. I am exceedingly proud of the work that the team at Restorative Solutions do in supporting our community. We should always consider the needs of victims of crime and this service exemplifies that sentiment and allows so many to put behind them what can be the worst experience of their lives.
Marc Jones, Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner and Chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.
