Along with other volunteers who engage in restorative justice solutions Richard was recognised for the contribution he made to resolve a long running dispute between residents and a local business.

If you think you have what it takes to facilitate a restorative justice approach to a problem why not look at our volunteering opportunities around Lancashire.
