RECOGNISING AND CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE IN THE FIELD OF RESTORATIVE PRACTICES
CENTRAL LONDON - 31st MARCH 2017
The focus of these awards is to celebrate together the life changing effects of Restorative Practice and to stand with those who have been able to overcome adverse circumstances to give hope to all those affected by conflict.
The awards will showcase best practice throughout employment, education, community settings and the criminal justice sector to demonstrate what can be achieved and to inspire others to take a restorative approach. We want to recognise individuals and organisations who are leading the way in demonstrating how and why restorative practices can be used to transform the way we live.
There will be a drinks reception from 18:30 with networking opportunities, followed by a food, an awards presentation and entertainment till late. The awards presentation will include videos and performances which showcase some of the best work that is happening in the field of restorative practice as well as some of the inspirational stories of our award winners. The Awards promises to be a real celebration and recognition of excellence and achievement and a range of high profile sponsorship opportunities are available.
