Since our training, I can see the positive changes in the conversations the team (and myself) are having with people. I can also see a difference within the team and how we tackle team issues and approach problematic cases.

Caroline Davies, Shine Project Manager, Taff Housing Association

We work with families, communities, business, criminal justice and education sectors.

Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership is an innovative co-operative social enterprise and a not for profit community interest company.

We support the building, maintaining and repairing of relationships across five core service areas: criminal justice, education, families, communities, and business. 

WRAP aims to empower service users and partner agencies to create their own restorative solutions to problems and harm.

WRAP is committed to social justice as well as criminal justice; building social capital restoratively and sustainably; and developing positive communities with healthy relationships.

Restorative Approaches (RA) includes the day to day skills involved in pre-empting conflicts and harm. It builds and maintains relationships and community, as well as reacting/ responding when things go wrong. RA engages and develops positive relationships and resilient communities, to reduce harm, and de- escalate conflict quickly by problem solving effectively

Some issues improved within communities, families and organisations with restorative approaches are:

  • Relationships
  • Meeting needs
  • Engagement and participation
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Conflict resolution – professional or personal
  • Reduction of offending and re-offending
  • Victim engagement and satisfaction
  • Skills and confidence to resolve conflict issues effectively
  • Safety and harmony in groups and communities
  • Partnership problem solving
