Are you interested in actively building good relationships, having the skills to prevent conflicts escalating to damaging levels, and being able to resolve conflict positively?

 The Restorative Practice approach is to prevent serious problems by being consistent in building and maintaining relationships and in resolving conflicts easily and effectively when they do arise.  Since 2010, the Childhood Development Initiative (CDI) has been working to develop Tallaght West as  a restorative community.

An independent evaluation of CDI’s Restorative Practice Programme from 2010 – 2012 found that it had been successful in improving people’s ability to handle conflict; in reducing the occurrence of conflict (particularly workplace conflict), in increasing collaboration between agencies, in improving relationships between service providers and service users, between work colleagues and between family members, and in supporting people to become more willing to report crime and anti-social behaviour.  The report is available at
