Restorative Solutions are at the forefront of developing training for all areas of restorative approaches. To this end we are constantly researching and developing training packages to increase the skills of practitioners in these areas. If you do not see what you need in the basic course list, please call and if we do not already have the programme we will develop it with and for you.

Examples of Bespoke training

With the establishment of Victim Hubs and Contact Centres we have developed a range of courses to train staff who are in contact with victims of harm and crime and may wish to be involved in Restorative Approaches. Each one we have developed has been adapted to the particular needs of the client and is consistent with their processes.

All of our expertise in training for Housing, Education and Care Sectors, Local Authority etcetera are similarly crafted.

With the increased use of restorative practice in the workplace we have developed training and implementation strategies to aid and support organisations introduce restorative practice internally and externally with staff and service users.

Examples of Specialist training

With the expansion of the use of restorative approaches we have developed specialised training for those dealing with Harmful Sexual Behaviour, this ranges from a comprehensive three day training package delivered by experts in the subject to overview and awareness of the issues in practice in this area.

Domestic Abuse is an area which require great sensitivity, skill and understanding both in the adult arena and increasingly with young people, amongst peers and towards parents and carers. Again, we have developed packages to address this area.

Hate crime similarly requires enhanced skill and understanding, we have developed packages, with partners, both for restorative practitioners offering the approaches and for those working with victims of such crime and harm. Allowing Practitioners to hone their skills and those working with victims to understand the benefits of a restorative approach for their clients.

All our work is based on evidence based practice and experience. Please contact us to discuss your specific training needs and your learning objectives. We will develop and deliver a high-quality programme that is perfectly adapted to your requirements.

In consultation design bespoke support to individuals and organisations, we will deliver:

  • Support and advice to increase knowledge and understanding of restorative principles and practice

  • Support and advice in demonstrating to all staff a commitment to restorative practice

  • Support and advice in how to put in place the key resources, policies, procedures, and quality assurance for successful restorative work to take place

What people say about Restorative Solutions

I'm so glad I am working with Restorative Justice. I don't know who would listen to me if it wasn’t for you.
A Person Harmed by Crime
Restorative Justice 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.
