The conference will be held on Wednesday 14 March 2012, 9.30am – 4.30pm, at The Resource Centre, London.
The event will be hosted by former TV news presenter Ed Mitchell, who has a very powerful and moving story to share.
Through a very wide-ranging selection of speakers and workshops, attendees will hear about latest thinking in the tackling and prevention of gang-related weapon-based offending. There will also be the opportunity to catch up with the most recent developments and initiatives around restorative justice and alternatives to violence. Can restorative justice take place effectively in knife-crime scenarios? This question will be confronted and discussed in the conference, led by people with first-hand experience of the relevant factors. As usual our workshops will be solution-focused, and will encourage cross-sector partnerships by sharing good practice and innovation.
Delegates from all sectors across criminal justice will benefit from the significant experience of professionals in the field, with key speeches from leading authorities on Restorative Justice, Gang, Gun and Knife Crime.
No Offence! is about building partnerships across the Criminal Justice Sector. These partnerships will maximise the benefits of combined expertise, and working in collaboration will produce innovative and effective responses to problems that are tough to tackle individually. The serious issues addressed at the conference will give delegates the opportunity to debate and explore future ways of working more effectively, and with budgets as tight as ever this will become increasingly more important. The last conference saw networking at its very best with new business being achieved on the day, so don’t miss out, use this day to meet experts and colleagues with the same overarching desire to make a difference.
