On Wednesday 31st March Griffins Society Director, Chris Leeson attended the launch of the Restorative Justice Council's new research report, 'Making restorative justice work for women who offend'.  She was delighted that programme director Debbie Pippard from Barrow Cadbury who funded the report, spoke about its genesis - that the inspiration for supporting the work had come from attending the launch seminar for Griffins fellow Rosie Mile's 2013 work on the use of restorative justice with women.  As Chris Leeson says,

'This is what the society is all about! Funding practitioner-led indicative research that throws a spotlight on issues that need to be addressed. It's particularly gratifying when the results of a fellow's efforts are so positively acknowledged and the impact is clear to see.'
