Brilliant West Berkshire - Restorative Practice in Action

Video testimonials from people involved in our restorative practice initiative, part of Brilliant West Berkshire: Bringing Communities Together

You can watch these videos about our restorative practice scheme in our Youtube Playlist, or watch them individually below.

Restorative practice is part of the Building Communities Together initiative.

Brilliant West Berkshire takes a unique approach designed to help people to help each other so that individuals and communities build on their strengths, making them more resilient and helping them to become less dependent on council services. Restorative Practice is a part of that.  Here, West Berkshire Council's Andrea King explains more about the idea.
