Restorative Justice School facilitators
Within the charity, the Restorative Justice programme provides a restorative justice process for victims and offenders at all stages of the criminal justice process. Restorative Justice (RJ) is a carefully managed, risk-assessed process, where communication, can be opened up between someone who has been harmed, and the person or people who have harmed them, this sometimes, but not always, involves a face-to-face meeting.

The role of an RJ Facilitator in School is to explore the RJ process with all parties, prepare for the RJ intervention, which could include an RJ face-to-face meeting, a letter of apology, or another indirect restorative process, and follow up with all participants. This work will only be required during school hours during the school terms.

This is a sessional job role as and when the referrals come in and we pay £25.00 per hour including travel time with all travel expenses reimbursed.

Role responsibilities:

The role of an RJ School Facilitator includes: –

  • Engaging prospective participants in the purpose and process of RJ;
  • Assessing a victim and harmer’s suitability for the process of RJ;
  • Preparing all participants for a RJ conference or other restorative intervention;
  • Recording of information shared;
  • Working alongside a Senior Practitioner to ensure the quality of RJ provided is to a high standard;
  • Committing to attending regular and ongoing training and support sessions;
  • Ensuring fairness, impartiality and equality of access to RJ processes.
