About us

Crime and conflict harm people, communities, teams and relationships.


We provide restorative solutions.

An external specialist can guide firms and people towards a restorative solution.


Restorative philosophy sees crime and conflict as more than breaking rules: it is about harm done to people, teams, and communities. 


We facilitate a process where the person who caused harm takes responsibility and seeks to make it right, and the people harmed have voice, agency, and an opportunity to be made whole.
