Inspiring change together

  • A multi-stakeholder co-operative

  • Conceived by prisoners in Cardiff prison, wanting earlier intervention and prevention to break the cycle of harm in their families

  • Trained 80 staff to address anti-social behaviour

  • Increased attendance and attainment within the four most improved schools across RCT by 50%

  • Provide restorative practice delivery; training; and consultancy work across five areas: education, criminal justice, families, business and communities

“Wales Restorative Approaches Partnership has relied on Social Business Wales from its very beginning. Their highly committed team continues to bring a wealth of best practice advice and diverse support for staff and our Board in this unique co-operative sector, with highly relevant social business experience. We would not have sustained through the challenge of start-up years without them, and we hope to continue to share our successes with them”.
