Brighton & Hove aims to be a ‘Restorative City’ and is committed to meeting the needs of those harmed by crime and conflict, by ensuring safe, secure and effective restorative practices are embedded throughout the city. Brighton & Hove’s Partnership Community Safety Team continually seeks to reduce barriers that our diverse communities may experience in reporting harassment or hate crime.
The Restorative Justice Council defines restorative practices as a range of various methods of bringing those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for harm, into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.
The Team will be offering a ‘restorative circle’ workshop for LGBTQ people to share their personal experiences of the internal and external barriers that they may have to reporting harassment or crime. The intention is to offer a fair and equal space for people to speak as openly as they wish about these barriers with the intention of raising awareness for the Team to address these barriers where possible.
The workshop will be facilitated by the team with support from the LGBT Community Safety Forum.
An hour & 15 minutes duration.
Only 12 spaces per session
