Age: 10-17
Sex: n/a
Cost: yes

 

 

Aims:

  • Designed predominantly for use by the Restorative Justice facilitators and their supervisor, but relevant to any/all situations in which face to face restorative processes are being planned.
  • Ensuring that all relevant issues have been properly considered and addressed so that face to face restorative practice is as safe and effective as possible for everyone involved.
  • It also provides a structured framework within which to review the effectiveness of processes and consider changes in the future.

 

 

Description:

Restorative Justice is all about trying to put things right when something has gone wrong, for example when an offence has been committed. One way of doing this, is to bring either both parties – or all the people affected – together in the same room to talk it through and come to a resolution that works for everyone.

The Restorative Justice Planning and Evaluation pro forma has been designed to ensure that all relevant issues are considered and responded to appropriately in the planning, delivery and review of a face to face restorative process.

 

 

Implementing the practice:

  • Start the process as soon as you begin to think about a face to face, rather than playing catch-up later.
  • Make sure that both practitioners are actively involved in the planning process.
  • Use the tool with the supervising manager at different points in the process to make sure that everything has been thought of.
  • Share the content with participants to ensure they understand that safety and effectiveness is taken seriously.
