HMPPS Restorative Practice pilot with Approved Premises – Evaluation Report

restorative thinking

In April 2015, Restorative Thinking won an open tender to find a new approach to foster inclusive residential environments at Approved Premises.  We decided to rigorously test restorative practice as an approach and from August 2015, for a period of one year, we ran the pilot with eight Approved Premises in the Midlands Division and eight in the North East Division.

The pilot was evaluated by Dr. Elizabeth A. Bates from the Department of Health and Social Care at the University of Cumbria.  The full Pilot Project Evaluation Report is now available to download here.
