RESTORATIVE JUSTICE IN HOUSING WORKSHOPS

 

South Gloucestershire and BANES.

 

25th November 9.15am-12.30pm and repeated again 1.15pm-4.30pm

UWE Lecture Theatre 1R026 (Morning) and 2Q50/51 (Afternoon) 

In South Gloucestershire and B&NES (the Police North East District Area) the Avon and Somerset Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s funded service for restorative justice provision is now fully implemented.

Referrals can now be made to the RJ Coordinator based at Keynsham Police Centre who will assess them and pass them onto the delivery partner, NERAP (North East Restorative Approaches project).  NERAP is a partnership of established local agencies: Bristol Mediation, SARI and also the Bristol Neighbourhood Justice Team.

The OPCC wants to promote this service to Housing Associations and Neighbourhood Teams as it is recognised that neighbourhoods, housing and accommodation services are key partners for the provision, as they also look after many local residents who may face or perpetrate incidents.  To raise awareness of this service for this sector the OPCC, in conjunction with the North East delivery partner NERAP, is organising an event to reach the communities in South Gloucestershire and BANES. The event will take the form of a three hour workshop to raise awareness and to encourage referrals of cases affecting housing tenants.

These workshops, explain RJ and the referral process, will be held on 25th November between 9.30-12.30pm and repeated again from 1.30pm-4.30pm. There will be inputs from Restorative Approaches in Housing (RAIH), Avon and Somerset Police, OPCC, SARI, Bristol Mediation and the UWE.

Venue:  The morning workshop will be held in Lecture Theatre 1R026, 9.15am for a 9.30am start with the afternoon session in Lecture Theatre 2Q50/51 from 1.15pm for a 1.30pm start.  These are both at UWE Frenchay Campus with Tea, coffee and refreshments provided.   Spaces are limited to each of these workshops so please book on one workshop only as soon as possible by following the link below.

Road Sharing - A Restorative Approach

Bristol is well known for its clogged streets and air pollution problems, as cars, bikes, buses, taxis and lorries compete with each other on its narrow congested roads. Disabled road users and pedestrians have a hard time too. These issues can lead to a lot of conflict and road rage.

 

What can we do?

 

In the year that Bristol is European Green Capital, the City Council is funding a project to bring road users together to discuss ways forward. It has awarded £10,000 to Bristol Mediation, the established independent local organisation which helps citizens resolve conflicts. Two part-time project workers have been appointed who will make contact with small groups of road users, to listen to their views and concerns.


 There will be separate group meetings for different road users, e.g. a meeting for cyclists, a meeting for car drivers, and so on. We hope to include organisations and individuals, however spaces will be limited. Each small group will attend a two-hour meeting in November 2015, and will then choose two or three people to represent their interests at a larger all-day meeting in February 2016.

 

The large meeting in February will be run using a restorative approach. This means that the focus will be on expression of concerns, dialogue between different groups of road users and finding a constructive way forward. It is hoped that those who attend will gain greater awareness and understanding of other road users perspectives.

 

The project will be evaluated using questionnaires and filmed interviews of participants before and after the large meeting. And Bristol Mediation will communicate the results of the restorative conference to Bristol City Council.

 

If you or your organisation wants to share your views and concerns by joining one of the small groups, please download and complete the form on the Bristol Mediation website

 

http://bristol-mediation.org/Road Sharing A Restorative Approach/.

 

The deadline for return of these forms is 30 September 2015.

I would like to tell you about an exciting opportunity to take part in the shortest sponsored walk you will ever do, which is taking place in Bristol on 3rd September.

The walk is only 5 metres long, which is just 5 or 6 steps! But there is a catch.

It is a Fire Walk!

There is no need to worry though as you will be in safe hands. We have enlisted the help of Survivorbility, the professional fire walking company, to run this event for us.

 

 

 

Guide dog owner Pat Alexander has already signed up to take part, and her guide dog Pearl will be watching from the side-lines on the night. Pat says 'Guide Dogs has changed my life, I want to change the lives of others'.

 

 

 

If you too would also like to be a life changer and take part in the fire walk, then you can sign up today by purchasing your ticket on this page (www,firewalkforguidedogs.eventbrite.co.uk) or you can request more information by contacting me on sarah.knox@guidedogs.org.uk or 07785 433266.

 

 

 

There is a £40 registration fee for an individual and we hope that you will be able to raise sponsorship of £150. A team of 3 can sign up for £90 and we hope they would be able to raise £450 in sponsorship. Once you register, we will send you a free fundraising pack to help you to raise your sponsorship money. Participants would need to arrive at 6.30pm.

 

If this doesn't sound like a challenge for you, then perhaps you might like to sponsor our brave fire walkers to give them some encouragement and support! You can do this at www.justgiving.com/GuideDogsFireWalkBristol

 

Every day people contact Guide Dogs to ask for our support. We want to be able to help them all. Money raised from this event will enable us to continue our life changing work and help more people like Pat, to have the same freedom of movement as everyone else.

 

If you would like any information about this event, or other ways you might be able to support Guide Dogs then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards,

Content: 

Throughout 2015 the BBC is running a campaign dedicated to encouraging families to cook and have fun in the kitchen called ‘Dish Up’. As part of this campaign BBC Learning is working with our colleagues in CBeebies to stage an event across 5 days this summer at Weston-super-Mare Seafront, Marine Parade, BS23 1BE.

The event will look like something of a mini festival with several tents/stages across the site. In each of these areas approximately 3 or 4 of our partners will be hosting a range of fun and interesting activities/demonstrations which promote healthy eating and kitchen skills. Activities will focus on children ages 0-6 and their families.

We’re looking for a team of bright and enthusiastic volunteers to get involved and support this event. You will be expected to help BBC Staff and partner organisations run hands-on, family-friendly activities and answering queries from the public. It is essential that you have strong inter-personal skills and plenty of energy as you’ll be dealing with the public and will be on your feet most of the day. We are looking for people with an interest in healthy eating, basic cooking, and where food comes from. It’s a great opportunity to pass your passion and knowledge onto our young visitors.

 All volunteers must be aged 18 or over.  

You will gain valuable experience helping out on a large-scale event and meet a diverse CBeebies audience. If you are interested in taking part and live within a 1 hour travel distance from Weston super Mare then please email cbeebiesevent2015.volunteers@bbc.co.uk for more information.

 

The dates for the event are as follows:

·          Wednesday 29th July

·          Thursday 30th July

·          Friday 31st July

·          Saturday 1st August

·          Sunday 2nd August
