Do you have recent experience of Restorative Justice? Do you have experience of restorative practice working with families and young people who are currently in the criminal justice system Then join Make Amends as a Restorative Justice and Family Practitioner and you could soon be playing a vital role at the heart of an exciting opportunity to help address serious and violent crime.  

Restorative Justice (RJ) is the process of bringing together victims with those responsible for the harm, to find a positive way forward.  It can provide a means of closure and enable the victim to move on.  RJ also provides an opportunity for offenders to face the consequences of their actions, recognise the impact that it has had upon others and, where possible make amends. In this way, RJ has the potential to help rehabilitate offenders and enable them to stop offending. 

This role provides a great opportunity to work with Police, third sector and statutory organisations to use Restorative Justice to impact on serious and violent crime working with families and young people. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about Restorative Justice to join us at this exciting time. An individual who prides themselves on the ability to work in partnership with other agencies.  

About the role: This new and evolving role is co-located between Make Amends, the Police and the statutory sector. Your challenge? To deliver a professional, trauma informed restorative justice service to young people and families who are affected by serious and violent crime including domestic abuse. Day-to-day, you will carry out casework aimed at healing the harm caused by crime, preventing re-offending, and 
improving situational breakdowns in the family, to prevent further involvement in the criminal justice system. Delivering restorative justice using varied restorative interventions, family group conferences and client meetings and assessments in a trauma informed way will be key, as will agreeing clients' needs and identifying desired outcomes/actions.
