Irish Penal Reform Trust

Facing Forward

14th December 2016

Facing Forward was established in 2005 in response to gaps in the Irish criminal justice system and to support the introduction of restorative approaches based on best practice that has emerged in other countries. 

Facing Forward conducts research into the possibilities for restorative justice processes in the context of Ireland, facilitates the use of restorative justice practices, and provides training in the practice of restorative justice and conflict transformation from leading practitioners.
