Inclusive Restorative Practice - Enabling Participation
Feb 10, 2012
From the conference announcement:
Restorative Practice has been shown to meet the needs of victims and reduce re-offending in Criminal Justice; and to improve attendance and reduce exclusions and bullying in Schools. Good practice means making sure these processes are open to everyone in our communities. How do we address some of the potential barriers to participation – ensuring through good practice that restorative processes are open to all?
This conference is suitable for anyone delivering restorative practice/restorative justice in schools, care homes, local authorities, police, prisons, probation, youth offending teams, workplaces and community based agencies.
