The ROC Conversation draws together those from the local community, including Police and Fire services, the local Council and churches, to discuss ways of working together for the good of the community. The main focus of the evening will be around the relaunch of the Wirral Neighbourhood Justice Scheme as ROC Restore Wirral. This is our ninth ROC Restore (restorative justice) project nationally and will be undertaken in partnership with Safer Wirral and the Police. ROC Restore is a form of Restorative Justice (RJ) undertaken by community members in facilitated meetings. The aim is to bring together victims and perpetrators of low level crime, anti-social behaviour and nuisance in a meeting where trained volunteers use restorative or reparative approaches to agree on a course of action for those involved. Providing the perpetrator admits liability and both parties consent to coming together, a meeting is held to consider the issues relating to the incident.
In order to be able to support this project, we would like to train further volunteers to facilitate Restorative Justice conferences and would be very pleased to hear from anyone who would be interested in this. The Volunteer Training Days will be Saturday 12th , 19th and 26th November (9.30am – 4.30pm), venue tbc. Further information about what volunteering involves will be covered at the ROC Conversation event.
The details of the event are as follows:
Thursday 13th October 7 – 9pm
Wirral Christian Centre, Woodchurch Road, Birkenhead CH41 2UE
