Our project has four stages:
The initial research for this project was completed in February 2018. After this, 12 sessions of training and workshops were delivered in Bradford with the sample, which consisted of 23 young people and 8 professionals working with young people. Our Youth Trainer Jamal was in Bradford delivering workshops for young people.
August 2018 – September 2018
During this phase IARS was analysing the outputs of the project delivery in order to determine the efficacy of the project over the 12 months it was delivered. The data included diversity monitoring forms, feedback evaluation forms and questionnaires for both young people and professionals.
The final event for the Restore: Respect project was held during Hate Crime Awareness Week on the 17th of October 2018 in Bradford (See Agenda below). The hate crime event showcased the project and the achievements of the young people involved, who were engaged throughout the delivery of the project from participating in workshops to planning and delivering the final event.
During the two-hour event Restorative Solutions together with IARS introduced the project and the final evaluation findings. After this, the young people, who have been at the heart of the project, shared their personal experiences, discussed hate crime and restorative justice, and presented their five restorative interventions. Furthermore, they launched the hate crime awareness poster, which they had also designed themselves (See Poster below). At the end of the event, the young people were awarded certificates of appreciation.
The final evaluation report was published in November 2018 as the final output of the Restore: Respect project. The final evaluation report summarises the key findings related to the outputs, outcomes and the impact of the project. Please see the final report below.
