Torbay Children’s Services and Local Area is working to adopt Restorative Practice, a strength-based approach that recognises that building a positive relationship with children, young people and families who need support is important.
We understand that life can sometimes be hard and what happens to us can affect how we think, feel, and behave. We know that how we work with children and families to talk about this and the ways in which we support them are important.
We recognise that listening to children, young people and families and working ‘with’ rather than doing things ‘for’ or ‘to’ people is the best way we can help support. This way of working is called restorative practice. It means our practitioners will focus on building positive relationships through respectful communication, collaboration and shared decision making to help create positive change.
The benefits of working restoratively include:
Torbay Children Services are offering free Restorative Practice training to all partner agencies.
