RESTORE demonstrates the power of transformative dialogue and supports the experience of bearing witness to each other’s lived stories within a safe, and non-judgemental space. For this to be possible, The Forgiveness Project has created gender specific, trauma-informed programmes that meet the needs of both men and women.
The use of creative arts is embedded within all our delivery, providing a range of tools so that all participants can express themselves safely.
RESTORE uses narrative techniques that strengthen resilience and restorative thinking in those who have lived experience of trauma.
We also provide bespoke programmes for prison officers. These programmes aim to support positive relationships between peers and prisoners, and allow an enabling environment to flourish within the whole prison community.
