Talking is the way forward



Tuesday 9 August 2016

Young people learn to build positive relationships through restorative approaches, featured in Bristol 24/7

 
Thanks to a successful first year 1625 Independent People’s “Restorative Approaches” project has been awarded £27,500 continuation funding from Avon and Somerset's Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens.



The Restorative Approaches service is being piloted at 1625ip's emergency live-in housing projects and offers a safe space for young people to talk through any issues or conflict and find a way forward together. It has made a positive impact on the lives of some of our most vulnerable young people, including those leaving care and young unaccompanied asylum seekers.

Scott, one young person who has benefitted from the project, shared his experience with Bristol 24/7. You can read the full story of how it helped him form better relationships with other residents and prevent situations from escalating here.

The new funding allows the current project to carry on for a further year without disruption, as well as enabling 1625ip to extend the pilot to their other supported housing projects in Bristol.
