Wishaw restorative justice scheme wins praise
A Wishaw restorative justice project has received an accolade at the first Scottish Community Service Awards held recently in Glasgow.
The market garden project, which is based on farmland in Netherton, was commended in the skills building category.
It has been running for four years and was the brainchild of community service works supervisor Bobby Campbell.
It teaches offenders skills including team work, hard landscaping, working machinery and learning all aspects of growing fruit and vegetables, as well as good life-changing skills.
Lancashire's restorative justice scheme criticised
The use of restorative justice is ‘inconsistent’ across Lancashire police, according to a report.
The tactic often involves offenders coming face to face with their victims and apologising or making amends either instead of, or as well as, a more formal punishment.
Boys made to work at park to compensate for vandalism
from the article in Ripley and Heanor News:
Three teenagers from Amber Valley have been helping rangers at Shipley Country Park as recompense for damaging a shed in the area.
The three boys caused the damage last month and, as punishment for their behaviour, were made to go back to the park and work for a day alongside the rangers.
