What's On

An event dealing with real stories, hosted by Lemn Sissay. 

In 2011 Jacob Dunne fatally knocked a man to his death in an unprovoked attack. As a result he received a two-and-a-half-year custodial sentence for manslaughter of which he served 14 months. On leaving prison Jacob found himself homeless, unemployed and struggling to get his life back on track. Two months later however his probation officer contacted him to ask if he had ever heard of restorative justice. She told him that the parents of the man he killed wanted to ask me some questions about that night. It was at this moment that he realised there were people involved in this crime who had been more harmed than him. After some reflection he decided that the very least he could do was help them make sense out of what had happened.

At this event Lemn Sissay will be talking to both Jacob Dunne and to Joan Scourfield, the mother of the man he killed. They will share with us how meeting through restorative justice has brought healing and helped both of them shape a better future.
