The Mint House is a centre for restorative practice in the heart of Oxford working to make high quality restorative practice more widely available. We are a member of the Restorative Justice Council.
What is Restorative justice? Restorative justice brings those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for the harm into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward. This is part of a wider field called restorative practice.
Restorative practice can be used anywhere to prevent conflict, build relationships and repair harm by enabling people to communicate effectively and positively. Restorative practice is increasingly being used in schools, children’s services, workplaces, hospitals, communities and the criminal justice system.
Whether it's a dispute with a neighbour, a workplace issue, concern for a friend or member of your own family - Restorative approaches are a powerful way to help people to move on with their lives and provide them with new tools to help them cope.
The Mint House can also be used by Restorative practitioners, those working within the criminal justice system, interested parties, key partners and community groups.
