UK Learning Tour

James Simon

I was delighted to host fellow restorative practitioners from South Korea as they undertook a UK Learning Tour. Working closely with the Korea Peacebuilding Institute (KOPI) we welcomed 28 restorative practitioners, researchers and academics to the UK in Mid-January. The purpose of the tour was to better understand how we have developed restorative practice across a range of sectors. To this end, we visited a range of organisations from across the UK including those working within criminal justice, education and health settings. There was also a keen interest to learn about how the UK are progressing with developing a restorative city model of practice. Over a 10-day period we visited 15 organisations and hosted two knowledge exchange seminars. We travelled a total of 1438 miles visiting Bristol, Coventry, Nottingham, Wakefield, Liverpool, Belfast and London.
