The Solent Restorative Partnership (SRP) is a new collaborative venture established by The New Forest & Southampton Mediation Service (NFSM) and The Portsmouth Mediation Service (PMS).
The aim of this new Association is to enable both mediation services to cooperate and collaborate to promote restorative justice and restorative practices & approaches to various communities within the Solent Corridor and adjoining areas.
This alliance will model something very positive and restorative compared to the past rivalries and competition between the two Unitary cities of Hampshire and will encourage local community involvement in training restorative justice/practices to help create and embed a restorative culture within the various people groups across the SRP region.
The SRP will also Promote and raise awareness of all things restorative within our communities through local networks and joint SRP initiatives such as conferences, workshops and presentations. It will overtime develop a strong partnership of restorative practice services across the SRP area to help represent the restorative need in the local community and to reflect that demand to wider audiences.
