Vale of Glamorgan Youth Offending Service - Restorative Facilitator

Neighbour Resolution Panels (NPRs) and Community Panel volunteers aim to address offending behaviour using restorative and reparative approaches creating resolutions for those harmed.

The meetings are facilitated by local Restorative Facilitator volunteers aged 18+ from the community, who are provided with training in Restorative Justice and Facilitation skills. These meetings are held either in a local community venue or the Youth Offending Service offices and will involve the harmed person / wider community and the wrongdoer and family.  Volunteers must live within the Vale of Glamorgan.

The aim of the meetings is to agree meaningful action on the part of the wrongdoer that meets the needs of the harmed and any wider community involved. This may include reparation within the community or further restorative interventions.

Community Panels involve working with young offenders, their parents or carers, and victims. Volunteer Panel members will discuss the offence and consequences of the offence with all parties and having heard the discussion, will agree an action plan, to involve the young person making good the harm done to the victim and will include activities to help prevent further offending.

Regular supervision is provided.  Primarily this opportunity takes place in the evenings from about 6p.m. usually running no later than 8p.m.

Full training is provided:

Foundation training:  Dates to be confirmed - this is a mandatory element of the training programme.  

Restorative Justice Training:  Dates to be confirmed.  Venue and timings to be confirmed shortly.

An informal discussion, references and an enhanced disclosure and barring check will be required.
