"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 is a Social Enterprise.  We work with Local Authorities, Children’s and Adult Services, Multi-Agency Teams, Primary, Secondary and Special schools to develop restorative and relational practice.  Our team offers consultancy, training, coaching, action learning sets, supervision/s … towards introducing, consolidating and embedding restorative and relational practice within and between teams and across organisations.  All our provision is tailored to meet individual team/organisational needs and intended outcomes.

Our (award winning) curriculum programmes empower pupils and parents with a restorative education, delivering sustainable, key life skills. We work in partnership with the Anti-Bullying Alliance.







Restorative Thinking holds the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM), the Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM), the CANparent Quality Mark and the i-Network Innovation Award for ‘Transforming and Innovating Public Services’ (November 2018).
