Josh joined our team after training with us in 2019; he brings a strong understanding of the relevance of Restorative Practice for building community among young people and for communicating about climate change.
Since Covid-19 Josh has led the transfer of our interactive group work to online settings supporting young people to stay in touch with each other in times of disruption and disconnection.
Josh leads work showing the relevance of Restorative Practice not only for interpersonal conflict but also for young people’s global citizenship, this includes our Tackling Racism Restoratively workshops, working collaboratively with Yasmine Fosu.
Yasmine has been an advocate for Restorative Practice at Penryn Campus where she co-ordinated a project which creatively recorded students’ experience of racism. Initially recruited by RJ Working as an Intern, Yasmine undertook our 3-day certificated training in October 2019. She has since become a sessional team member supporting RJ Working’s commitment to championing equalities with Cornwall’s young people. With Josh Rogers she has developed innovative ways of working including our Tackling Racism Restoratively workshops.
Louise is our Schools Programme Lead, thanks to funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. With a background in teaching and middle leadership in secondary schools, Louise builds relationships across Cornwall to develop our work. She is also responsible for continuous and co-produced evaluation.
Our CEO Deborah Mitchell is an active Quaker. She supervises our team developments and represents our team at Conferences nationally and internationally.
An independent Social Worker, Deborah is the RJ Working Restorative Practice lead and provider of professional supervision.
