Free Restorative Justice training for Stonehouse residents

Make Amends who provide Restorative Justice services across Devon and Cornwall are providing free training courses for Stonehouse residents as part of their partnership working with the Stronger North Stonehouse initiative.

Make Amends has joined forces with Stronger North Stonehouse to offer residents free training which will see them become Restorative Justice Champions and make a difference in their local communities.

Restorative Justice is a safe and voluntary process which brings those who have been affected by crime into communication with those responsible to help everyone move forward from what has happened.


Soo Brizell, Make Amends Service Manager, said: “Anyone who would like to understand more about what RJ is and how to champion it within your community, please join us for our training.

“During the training, we will introduce you to the RJ process, help you to think about where and how it can be used within your own lives and community, and understand how to make a referral to our team.”

No previous experience or qualifications are needed, and support is offered for any accessibility needs.

The courses Make Amends will be offering to Stonehouse residents are as follows:
