You will play a critical role in supporting the team to facilitate restorative justice with victims of crime and young people and to deliver on our statutory and key principle of keeping victims safe. You will respond to the needs of the victims and their families within a statutory framework and work with young people who have offended to repair the harm that has been caused, either directly or indirectly through restorative activities.

• Evidence of Continued Professional Development (CPD)
• Ability to manage engagement, conflict, difficult and high-risk situations
• Knowledge of the Youth Justice system
• Experience of appropriate use of evidence based restorative justice interventions that improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.
In return, we offer you the opportunity to work within a small and friendly team who are committed to supporting young people and their families.

We are working towards a hybrid way of working and in this role, you will work at Elmwood Place, 37 Burtons Way, Smiths Wood, B36 0UG, other locations around the borough and at home.
