volunteer facilitators – Restorative Justice Project
ARE YOU A GOOD LISTENER, NON JUDGEMENTAL, CONFIDENT AND ABLE TO WORK ON YOUR OWN INITIATIVE?
WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION TO YOUR COMMUNITY?
If the answer is yes, and you live in the Bradford/Keighley area, and you are over 18 years old, then why not become involved in this exciting Restorative Justice Project. You will gain valuable knowledge and skills in facilitating Restorative Justice Conferences, interviewing victims and offenders and partnership working with professionals within the Criminal Justice System.
It will be your role as the Volunteer Restorative Justice Facilitator to interview those that have been harmed and those that have caused the harm and then facilitate any resulting face-to-face meetings or correspondence to help both victims and perpetrators move on positively with their lives. You will also be involved in facilitating meetings for those involved in neighbourhood conflict.
Volunteers will undergo a 3 day Accredited Restorative Justice Facilitator training course, which will equip them with the skills necessary to facilitate a conference. This opportunity could be helpful for those considering a career in this increasingly growing area of work or in other areas of the Criminal Justice System. There may also be the opportunity to be accredited for the BTEC Level 3 in Restorative Approaches.
If this is something that you are interested in please contact

You will then be invited to attend an Information Session in October to find out more.
Closing Date: Wednesday 26th October 2016
