Centre for Justice Innovation

We seek to build a justice system which all of its citizens believe is fair and effective. To deliver this, we: 
·      Identify, design, support and spread innovative practice to solve problems and test new ideas.
·      Promote evidence and innovative practice in justice policy reform, helping policymakers remove the barriers to innovation experienced by practitioners.
·      Share ideas and practice across jurisdictions, especially through our unique partnership with the Center for Court Innovation and our alliances with organisations in the UK.

Halliwell Homes

Halliwell is a social enterprise generating best practice thinking.
The model of Restorative Parenting® is holistic providing the space – environmental and interpersonal – for improved psychological well-being for looked after children.  Alongside our children’s homes our Ofsted GOOD schools work in partnership to create a holistic therapeutic approach.
Restorative Parenting® measures the child’s recovery:  engagement with learning, developing self-care skills, forming relationships and attachments, building positive self perception, developing self-management skills and self-awareness, becoming more emotionally competent.
The Programme is delivering improving outcomes.  In the last 18 months we have seen 63% of children leaving the Programme move to fostering/kinship placements.

Family Stability Network

This year has highlighted the importance of safe, nurturing relationships that we can depend on over time, through thick and thin. We know that four in five young people see lasting and fulfilling relationships as at least as important as their work ambitions.

At their best, families and friends help protect us through the difficult times and support us to develop the skills, confidence and resilience we need to thrive throughout life.

We connect people, spark collaborations and nurture ways that improve family stability to create an inclusive, committed and compassionate future for everyone.
