Restorative Torbay is a new project which has been set up to increase restorative work across Torbay. The project works with partners to deliver restorative approaches which repair the harm caused by crime, conflict, anti-social behaviour and the harmful actions of others.
Independence, Confidentiality and Impartiality
The service we offer is independent, impartial and confidential. This means that we will not share your information with other organisations unless there is an immediate risk to you or another person, or safeguarding issues are identified. Although we work in partnership with statutory agencies we are independent from them, which means that we will only share information with them with your consent.
Our practitioners have undergone specialist training in restorative justice and mediation, operating to the highest standards. They are individuals who are passionate about repairing harm and strongly believe in the principles of restorative practice. Their aim is to support those involved to find a resolution and to make the experience as positive as possible.
Watch us as we develop
Restorative Torbay is still in its infancy having started in September 2014. The first phase of the project involves consultation and visioning, talking to stakeholders, service users, partners and the community to envision Torbay as a place where restorative approaches flourish. The project is busy developing the infrastructure needed to run the project, ready for an official launch in March/April 2015.
How can I get involved?
As the project is brand new we would be keen to hear from you if you are a restorative practitioner or a trained mediator who would like to get involved in the project. Likewise we would also like to hear from you if you are keen to volunteer with the project.
In addition we would be keen to hear from members of the community who could be restorative champions supporting the work of the project and advocating for an alternative way of dealing with crime, conflict, anti-social behaviour and the harmful actions of others.
I have been affected by crime, conflict, anti-social behaviour or the harmful actions of others and I like to take part in Restorative Justice or receive mediation services.
Regardless of whether you have reported an incident to the police or the local council you can contact the project to talk through your options about restorative justice or mediation.
