To date, restorative justice (RJ) practices have been used, predominantly, in the criminal justice sector. Konnect Communities is keen to develop its involvement in this arena.
Our mentors identify key barriers to gaining sustainable employment and work with clients to overcome these barriers. This could include referral to our Life Choices course or connecting individuals to the many specialist services we have available to us.
The criminal justice hub operates, primarily, as a referral source for clients. Konnect intends to support prolific offenders over the age of 19 at various points in their criminal justice experience.
Konnect supports victims of crime by offering both emotional advice and reassurance, and practical support to enhance security and reduce risk.
CBT based employability course for people who consider themselves far from job ready. Life Choices focusses on helping individuals with their self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem and motivation.
What we do
Konnect Communities works to enable, motivate and inspire people in our communities who are seeking to improve their skills, develop their opportunities and maximise their potential. We work with a wide range of individuals including victims and offenders of crime, and young people struggling to remain in education.
We know that the expertise of the practitioner and the strength of their relationship with the client is the strongest determinant of the impact of a service.
The aim of Konnect is to work closely with clients, to create a tailored and supported pathway that supports the development and enhancement of life skills so that clients are enabled to participate in a positive and constructive future.
In order to achieve this, Konnect provides a needs-based service that includes access to mentoring; training, meaningful and relevant education and facilitates opportunities for employment.
We will ‘Konnect’ our clients with existing and bespoke provision in education, training and the work place, thus enabling them to move forwards and to participate in a more productive future. To find out more visit our Services and Partners pages.
