The Deputy Police Commissioner will be the keynote speaker at the launch of the Wirral Neighbourhood Justice Scheme.

This new initiative is designed to help tackle anti-social and lower level crime in Wirral by empowering communities to resolve conflicts. This will involved the use of locally-recruited community volunteers using restorative justice to bring together those who have caused harm with those affected to repair the damage done.

This approach is also designed to reduce re-offending, stop problems from escalating and reduce the harm caused to victims.

Cllr Ann O'Byrne, who as Deputy as a specific remit for victims, will be speaking alongside the Chief Executive of Restorative Solutions Gary Stephenson, Restorative Justice Housing expert John Stevenson and offender mentor Peter Woolf.

Volunteers will also be on hand to talk about their experiences.
