Restorative Practice

Restorative Practice

The Portsmouth Safeguarding Children Board and Portsmouth Children’s Trust are committed to promoting a restorative approach to working with children, young people and their families. Professionals in Portsmouth are challenged to implement a fundamental change to the relationship between themselves and families; from doing things to and for families to doing things with them.

Restorative techniques can be used to:

  • support families to help themselves through a mixture of high support and high challenge
  • involve children and families in plans and decisions needed to safeguard and promote the welfare of a child
