This e-book presents the work of children and young people who used the values of restorative justice to create and deliver youth-led social
action projects that enhanced community cohesion. The two projects were Watersports Youth Matters funded by the Mayor of London and Restore Respect in Rotherhithe funded by the Neighbourhoods Fund and Southwark Council. The e-book brings the results of their work
to life with the aim of inspiring other children and young people to do the same, and become community leaders in their localities
independently of where they are from.
The e-book is a live testimony of the value that youth-led social action can bring to community cohesion and it articulates how art, sports,
dialogue and restorative justice can be used to empower marginalised groups to become inspirational leaders.
