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:
- 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
- Transformation in working practice and environment
Restorative justice is a balanced and impactful way to resolve issues safely and effectively.
The quality of our relationships in our learning and teaching communities can really affect our ability to access education and achieve our full potential.
Families rely on their relationships to be happy, healthy, and resilient. When relationships are good, home is a place we can be our best.
Communities, from the smallest working group to the largest neighbourhood, need to continually, build, maintain and repair their relationships to live alongside each other respectfully.
Effective businesses attend to their values and relationships continually to ensure they flourish and are resilient to change and challenge.
