As part of the B RIGHT ON LGBT Community Festival, the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum (B&H LGBT CSF) present an LGBT Restorative Circle workshop in partnership with the Brighton & Hove City Council Workers Forum.
Part of Brighton’s LGBT History Month events, the workshop will take place in the Phil Starr Pavilion and be facilitated by the Brighton & Hove’s Partnership Community Safety Team with support from the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum.
Brighton & Hove aims to be a ‘Restorative City’ and is committed to meeting the needs of those harmed by crime and conflict, by ensuring safe, secure and effective restorative practices are embedded throughout the city.
Brighton & Hove’s Partnership Community Safety Team work to reduce barriers that our diverse communities may experience in reporting harassment or hate crime.
The Restorative Justice Council defines restorative practices as a range of various methods of bringing those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for harm, into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.
Organisers will be offering a ‘restorative circle’ workshop for LGBT+ people to share their personal experiences of the internal and external barriers that they may have to reporting harassment or crime. The intention is to offer a fair and equal space for people to speak as openly as they wish about these barriers with the intention of raising awareness for the organisers to address these barriers where possible.
This event is funded, supported and developed by the Brighton & Hove Council LGBT Workers Forum in working partnership with the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum.
