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.
