Our vision

Building the world’s restorative justice postcode

At RJ4All, we believe that power abuse is the biggest silent driver of inequalities, human rights violations and community tensions. We also have evidence to believe that trust in public services is declining and that a new social contract between communities and governments is needed. We want to root out greed and disseminate power in a more equal way. We know that we can do this by starting locally from our own neighbourhood in South East London. 

Using our post-code (SE16) and the values and principles of restorative justice, we set off on a journey to bring together those who hold local power and our local community to build the world’s first restorative post-code.

Narrated by RJ4All’s Founder and Director Dr. Theo Gavrielides, the video (5 minutes) articulates his vision of building the world’s first restorative justice postcode

What does the success look like?

In practice, this means that community members get to experience a more equal distribution of local power, while they start feeling that their voice is heard and included in decision-making processes that impact on them. 

In the next five years, we envision a restorative justice postcode where we can achieve: 

The Restorative Justice Postcode Research Project

At RJ4All, our commitment extends beyond our passion for our work – it encompasses how we conduct and evaluate it. Starting from January 1, 2023, once all our comprehensive services were established at the RJ4All Rotherhithe Community Centre, we initiated a concurrent research project spanning the next five years. This project aims to bolster our restorative justice postcode vision. The insights gained will pave the way for pioneering future restorative justice postcodes in London and globally, employing user-led and data-driven methodologies.

We employ a quantitative approach to assess our Centre’s impact, diligently logging each user’s details, including postcode and basic demographics. Qualitatively, we carry out post and pre-intervention interviews using The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scales – WEMWBS, focus groups, online and offline questionnaires and case studies.
