Becoming Accredited

Restorative Solutions has partnered with leading training provider Red Snapper Learning to offer two types of Accreditations in Restorative Approaches.

Undertaking accreditation is the best way to consolidate your existing experience and expand your range of skills.

Becoming an Accredited Practitioner will also make you stand out as a highly qualified Restorative Professional, with a minimum certified experience and the ability to apply restorative approaches in a competent and safe manner.

Next Step to Achieving Accreditation and Accessing Continued Support

As your skills and experience as a practitioner grows, we recommend that you consider registering for our Accreditation Scheme. This is particularly important for you, as we are seeing restorative practice increase and the need for accredited practitioners is greater than ever before.

Organisations providing restorative services are seeking accredited practitioners who are capable and skilled in working with individuals in a range of situations.

In summary our accreditation scheme offers:

  • Academic rigour with practical relevance

  • A supportive learning culture

  • Active learning opportunities

  • A learner centred system

  • Affordable fees for recognised qualifications

This will help you to demonstrate your ability to achieve outcomes in a safe and professional way and operate in line with the National Occupational Standards.

Restorative Solutions CIC and Red Snapper Learning

These accreditation schemes result from a partnership between Restorative Solutions CIC and Red Snapper Learning. Both organisations bring a wealth of experience to develop a scheme that is relevant and rigorous and provides a benchmark of quality.

Restorative Solutions has successfully introduced restorative practices to organisations, volunteers, and front-line workers. Building a proven track record of success in providing support, training, and project delivery in restorative approaches across England and Wales.

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.
