Events

Why me? run events aimed at widening access to Restorative Justice, exchanging knowledge and sharing findings from our projects. Our forums are recurring meetings for a specific audience, whereas our other events are stand alone conferences.  

Forums

We run one monthly forum for people working in Youth Offending teams, and one monthly forum for people working for PCC-funded Restorative Providers. 

These forums are an opportunity to meet those working in your sector to learn and share knowledge as well as stay up to date with what is happening in the Restorative Justice community, hear from key speakers and engage in lively and relevant discussion.  

 

Youth Justice Forum

The next Youth Justice Forum is to be confirmed.

 

 

 

The next Restorative Provider Forum is on Tuesday 30th November at 12pm.

Events

We run a variety of different events throughout the year which cover a wide range of topics. From sharing findings from our latest projects to highlighting practical advice for best delivering Restorative Justice, we aim to offer engaging, accessible and interactive events which we hope you find useful.

Offering RJ to people with Learning Disabilities and Autism

Thursday 9th December, 10:00 – 11:30 pm, Zoom

Join Why me? on the 9th of December for a discussion on how Restorative Justice can be delivered to people with Learning Disabilities and Autism.

Over the last year Why me? has partnered with organisations who are professionals in working with people from those communities and sought to learn from their experiences. This event is designed to better inform RJ practitioners on how RJ might be better explained to people with Learning Disabilities and Autism, to consider some of the challenges and difficulties that might be encountered and overcome when working in this field, and to see and hear how RJ may be a constructive process in helping victims of crime with LDA to understand what has happened and move forward with their lives.

We will also use the event to showcase four short films for the very first time. The films have been made during the course of the project by students at Middlesex University with actors who have Learning Disabilities or Autism.
