The island of Ireland as a restorative society believes in and integrates restorative practices as a way of building and maintaining relationships, which enable health and wellbeing.
Restorative Practices Ireland (RPI) promotes and supports the use of restorative approaches spanning all sectors of the community in Ireland both locally, regionally and nationally through the development of strategies designed to embed these practices across society including schools, neighbourhoods and services in the context of a life cycle approach.
- To promote restorative practice as a key approach to prevention and early intervention;
- To develop the potential for restorative practices to support inclusion with communities, sectors and organisations;
- To identify potential for collaboration and joint developments;
- To develop capacity, systems and infrastructures which support the growth and evolution of restorative practices, as well as build their sustainability;
- To progress and support locally based accreditation and training options; and
- To offer those interested in the strategic development of restorative practices a space for reflecting, crystallising, sharing and deepening understanding.
RPI is open to all those across the island of Ireland who have a role in the strategic management and development of restorative practices.
