Make Amendswho provide Restorative Justice services across Devon and Cornwall have been providing free training courses for Stonehouse residents and those involved in Stonehouse projects as part of their partnership working with theStronger North Stonehouseinitiative. 

As a continuation of the work already completed, the Make Amends team are delighted to be offering free training titled ‘Working restoratively with Young People’. The training will take place on Tuesday 20th April 2021 10:00 - 13:00

For those who have already attended the Restorative Justice champions training sessions in January or February or have previous experience with working restoratively, then they are welcome to attend the Working Restoratively with Young People training. 

During the training, participants will be helped to: 

  • Identify what are some of the issues we need to consider when working restoratively with young people. 
  • Understand how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can impact on life chances and how restorative justice may help to address them.  
  • Identify learning needs and explore strategies for successful restorative justice working. 

This initial session will be facilitated via Zoom with a follow up practical skills session taking place face-to-face when safe to do so after Covid-19 restrictions have lifted. The skills session will focus on the use of arts and crafts with young people.  

Places on the course are limited to 16, so we recommend you book in soon!
