Every movement stems from unique and often life changing origins. We traced the origins of The Restorative Justice Council back to a pivotal meeting between two of it’s greatest advocates, a career criminal and one of his many victims.
Peter Woolf was a prolific offender, ensconced in a world of violence and depravity, who, by his own reckoning committed about 20,000 crimes. Then he burgled a house, fought with his victim and ended up in prison yet again. This time though it was different. Peter met with his victim, Will, in a restorative justice session that took place in the prison. The meeting changed both their lives for ever.
Peter and Will tell their story in this powerful short film that has been used as a teaching aid in schools and prisons internationally.
