A restorative approach to address anti-social behaviour in a neighbourhood engages the community, prevents escalation of the behaviour and justice is seen to be done. This has been shown to lead to an increase in public confidence and a reduction in the fear of crime. Restorative practice is an innovative and inspiring way to tackle problems which can completely change the mind set of those involved, and can equip those involved to deal more effectively with disputes that arise.
adjust promotes the use of restorative approaches in organisations dealing with anti-social behaviour and other neighbourhood conflicts. Working with community garda teams, social housing providers, Local Authorities, anti-social behaviour units and community organisations we can provide training and advice on implementing community restorative justice approaches.
