Restorative practices in Hull officially began in August 2007 with the creation of Hull Centre for Restorative Practices (HCRP). The centre comprises of Estelle Macdonald who is a Headteacher Consultant and leads the Centre, Mark Finnis is a Project Consultant and Lead trainer, Christopher Straker is a Headteacher Consultant and Jo Faulkner who is the Families Project Co-Ordinator.
The challenge in Hull at the beginning was trying to find a group of like minded professionals across all services who believed in Restorative Practices and who could make key decisions. This is when a management group was set up to bring together these key decision makers on a regular basis. (excerpt)
