Volunteer Restorative Justice Facilitator Positions in North Yorkshire

Tuesday 24th August 2021

ARE YOU A GOOD LISTENER, NON-JUDGEMENTAL, CONFIDENT AND ABLE TO WORK ON YOUR OWN INITIATIVE?

WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION TO YOUR COMMUNITY?

If the answers are yes, you live in North Yorkshire and you are over 18 years old, then why not become involved in this exciting Restorative Justice Project. You will gain valuable knowledge and skills in interviewing victims and offenders, facilitating Awareness Courses, Restorative Justice Interventions, and partnership working with professionals within the Criminal Justice System.

It will be your role as a Volunteer Restorative Justice Facilitator to interview those that have been harmed and facilitate the Hate Crime Awareness Course and the Violent Crime Awareness Course. Upon experience training in and delivering these courses, volunteers can then progress and attend a further two day Restorative Justice Facilitator training course to become a Restorative Justice Practitioner. Once trained, volunteers will be able to work with victims and offenders to facilitate face to face conferences or correspondence to help both victims and perpetrators move on positively with their lives. You will also be involved in facilitating meetings for those involved in neighbourhood conflict.

This opportunity could be helpful for those considering a career in this increasingly growing area of work or in other areas of the Criminal Justice System. There may also be the opportunity to be accredited for the BTEC Level 3 in Restorative Approaches.

If this is something that you are interested in, please get in touch at: RJNorthYorkshire@restorativesolutions.org.uk

You will then be invited to attend a zoom Information Session in September to find out more.
