Should we be concentrating on the FOUR Rs?
Reading, writing, ‘rithmetic and restorative justice?
Geoff Baxter OBE (who we’ve featured in issue #19) has launched a charity, Restorative Practice UK.
He believes that conflict negatively affects thousands of people every year, often leaving families and communities broken and unable to move forward.
A restorative approach to dealing with conflict has been proven to cut reoffending by 14%. “I am delighted to be part of this charity launch and excited about the amazing opportunity we have to see communities transformed through restorative practices,” says Geoff.
“Anything – anything – which can turn negative experiences into positives has my vote. Having witnessed a restorative justice programme in a young offenders’ establishment – which I found extraordinary – I am delighted to give my full support to RPUK. Any organisation seizing the moment to re-address people’s past misdemeanours is to be saluted,” adds Jonathan Robinson, former prisoner, author and independent prison reform campaigner (who featured in issue #6).
RPUK intends to raise the profile of what works and celebrate success, giving others the confidence to take a restorative approach. If you’d like to find out more about RPUK’s work and their up-and-coming awards too, click here.
