Towards Excellence in Restorative Practices: A Quality Assurance Framework for Organisations and Practitioners
Commissioned by the Restorative Practices Strategic Forum (RPSF) the Quality Assurance Framework is an important step in achieving the objective to develop capacity, systems and infrastructures that support the growth, evolution and sustainability of restorative practices.
It is designed to provide clear, practical information and encourage and support individuals and organisations to achieve high-quality restorative practice consistently for the benefit of all.
It is hoped that the Framework will be a valuable tool to those delivering restorative services. For many practitioners and service managers, it will offer familiar concepts and approaches as well as a checklist for systematically reviewing practice from time to time. It may also have value in supporting and informing the training of new practitioners and in continuing professional development. Download a copy here
A Community Wide Restorative Practices Implementation Guide
This Implementation Guide describes the steps involved in establishing a community-wide Restorative Practices (RP) Programme. This is not a manual for delivering RP training; rather, this Guide will explain the recommended steps for setting up and implementing an RP programme aimed at establishing a cohesive, community-wide approach, and what is required in terms of ongoing support to ensure both effective service delivery and ongoing sustainability of the programme. The Guide is presented in five sections, with accompanying appendices, as follows:
Section 1 : Exploring and Preparing
Section 2: Planning and resourcing
Section 3: Implementing and Operationalising
Section 4: Business as Usual
Section 6 : Some things for consideration
