2 Support Against Racist Incidents 23 years plus working with victims of Race Hate Crime Commissioned to provide Hate Crime Services across all Protected Characteristics Lead organisation in new collaborative model of working across the city Nearly 1,600 incidents of hate crime were reported in Bristol last year and many go unreported Working with 7 Housing Associations across South West and Bristol City Council Landlord services Stand Against Racism and Inequality

3 Hate Crime & Housing Your communities are becoming more diverse Not just about race or nationality with increases in disability/ homophobic and transphobic hate crime Understand the relationships between Hate Crime and ASB These issues breakdown communities A variety of tools are available Proportionality/ Serious Detriment Early intervention/ staff with cultural competencies and confidence

4 Restorative Approaches

5 Justice OR Approaches? Restorative approaches to resolving conflict and repairing harm are about doing things differently and engaging those involved in conflict to be part of the solution. Philosophy that can be applied to range of situations and not just Criminal Justice Restorative Bristol will NOT refer to Restorative Justice BUT to Restorative Approaches

6 Restorative Bristol VISION A city where individuals, agencies and services see restorative approaches as the first option for dealing with conflict. Restorative Bristol builds connections and networks between organisations and individuals who work across the spectrum of restorative justice, restorative approaches and restorative philosophies. We recognise and value the diversity of work on this issue and also recognise the common principles which underpin restorative work. So why S.A.R.I.? Victim orientated approach. Working in communities to build cohesive communities.

7 Key Principles Facilitating dialogue between all those affected by the wrong doing or conflict Encouraging those responsible for the harm done to become accountable for their actions and responsible for putting right the wrong Ensuring that all those involved or affected are given the opportunity to share their story, their feelings and their needs Involving everyone affected in finding mutually acceptable ways forward Repairing the harm caused by any behaviour that has a negative impact on others while attempting to build relationships

8 Values Organisations Families People harmed through conflict Perpetrators Communities Training Innovation

9 Options Not to be seen as a diluted option/ intervention Flexibility/ must do what is possible to get voices heard Can be used: Instead As well After Victim/ Harmed must understand process so need to invest time Benefits – Victim satisfaction/ reduced re offending

10 Case Studies Racist Hate Crime Students in shared house Use of SMS services Police unable to take formal action. Partnership working with Police & University Feedback from ‘harmed’ and ‘harmed’s family.’ Conference feedback And now? Homophobic Hate Crime Homophobic verbal abuse and threats Impact on ‘harmed’ Criminal action Conference Solutions

11 Feedback Time – Setting up and getting understanding from both harmed and harmer Measures of success? Time scales – not a quick option with time for review Early understanding of Hate motivated issues Link to ASB and underlying causes? Need good communication/ inter agency liaison

12 So what next? Not a watered down version If you don’t repair the harm then what are the options Building teams and partnerships that have cultural competencies and confidence to understand Hate Crime and then engage early Won’t be right all the time, but an additional tool in your toolbox Build communities and celebrate diversity
