Restorative Justice Volunteers.

We have been contacted by PS Michele BIRCH of the West Midlands Police who are looking for volunteers to help out on the Restorative Justice scheme. email restorative_justice@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk

Restorative Justice gives those who have been affected by anti-social behaviour or crime the opportunity to explain how they have been affected to the person who caused the harm and have a voice in decideing on how that harm may be repaired.

  

• Full training to give you with the skills to be a restorative justice facilitator.

• Regular professional supervision, continued professional development and an opportunity to be part of a thriving community of practitioners.

• Experience within the Criminal Justice and Restorative Justice industry.

• An opportunity to help people to cope and recover from what has happened to them.

• Networking opportunities with our statutory and voluntary & community sector partners.

• Belonging and a sense of purpose

• Financial recompense for travel expenses incurred.

Vetting

All volunteers will need to be vetted to standard police vetting as you will be given access to live cases. You will also be given access to our secure RJ database where you will update your case work. These cases will provide sensitive and personal information and West Midlands Restorative Justice Service take our information security seriously.

Any previous criminal convictions are not an automatic barrier to becoming a Restorative Justice volunteer. We will assess each person on an individual case by case basis.

Internet Access

Volunteers will be able to update their case work without the need to come into a police station but you will need internet access to update your case work.
