22 June 2018

Make Amends is looking to recruit volunteer restorative justice practitioners who live in Cornwall, Exeter and North Devon.

Make Amends is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Restorative Justice service for Devon and Cornwall. Restorative Justice helps to repair the harm caused by crime by bringing people affected by the incident into communication with the person responsible in order to find a positive way forward. Restorative Justice practitioners achieve this by facilitating a safe, voluntary and inclusive process which allows everyone to discuss the impact of the event and support those involved to move forward from the crime by addressing their needs.

What do I get out of volunteering for Make Amends?

  • 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.
  • Reward and recognition.
  • 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.
