The G15 Drumchapel Youth Group will show a video made by young people, and will be supported by CYCJ Participation Worker Iain Corbett.

Sheriff David Mackie Revealing and Releasing the Potential of Restorative Justice
Sheriff Mackie will address the proposition that while the benefits of RJ and RJ processes have been proven, they are still not widely understood; the development of RJ processes, especially in a criminal justice setting, must go hand in hand with a programme of education and information.
