Creating Restorative Cornwall – Making a Start
The film ‘Creating Restorative Cornwall – Making a Start’, shows a range of alliances and cross sector work that has taken place in Cornwall over the last 18 months.
Being ‘restorative’ is available to anyone, it is about making changes for the better, sorting things out, finding ways to talk things over and learning more about different points of view.
Restorative Justice is more specifically about a careful and supported response to harm that has been caused by crime or conflict. As part of a wider network of organisations RJ Working has a growing understanding of restorative practices and the quality standards required by the Restorative Justice Council.

The Woolf Within
Peter Woolf was a prolific offender who, by his own reckoning committed about 20,000 crimes. Then he burgled a house, fought with his victim and ended up in prison yet again. This time though it was different. Peter met with his victim, Will, in a restorative justice session that took place in the prison. The meeting changed both their lives for ever.
