"Relationships built through restorative practice are the oxygen people and communities need to survive and thrive..." (Dr Jim Longo, Washington and Jefferson College)

Welcome to Restorative Thinking

schools_bannerRestorative Thinking Limited is a Social Enterprise.  We work with Local Authorities, Children’s and Adult Services, Primary, Secondary and Special schools to develop restorative strategies and to promote a restorative culture in organisations and schools.

In Schools and Children’s Centres our prevention and intervention programmes empower pupils, parents and teachers with a restorative education; alongside training, they make restorative practice in schools practical, accessible, engaging and effective. Central to our work are the outcomes for pupils, parents and teachers, providing opportunities for positive change and delivering key life skills in restorative practice in the classroom. We work in partnership with the Shackleton Foundation and the Anti-Bullying Alliance.

Restorative Thinking Limited has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM) and the Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM).  We aim to model restorative practice in all our dealings.  Download Restorative Thinking Limited’s company introduction here.
