We endeavour to provide restorative justice mediation, dialogue and conflict transformation in a range of contexts, mainly in the Tshwane area.
We currently offer the following:
- A restorative justice mediation and dialogue service with a specific focus on GBV matters. Cases can be referred from any source but are currently mainly from the Pretoria and Pretoria North Magistrates’ Courts at a pre-trial stage
- A programme for perpetrators of domestic violence known as ARC – Acceptance, Repentance, Confession. Cases can be referred from any source but are currently mainly from the Pretoria and Pretoria North Magistrates’ Courts at a pre-trial stage
- A restorative justice mediation and dialogue service to people in prison who are eligible for parole, in support of the correctional centres of the Department of Correctional Services in the Tshwane area
- A team equipped to respond to conflict at schools
- We are supporting a pilot project seeking to apply restorative justice approaches to wildlife offences. This project is being implemented by the Endangered Wildlife Trust under the World Wide Fund for Nature South Africa Khetha Programme, supported by the United States Agency for International Development.
