About us

The Foundation is a registered charitable trust committed to promoting relationships that enhance development for individuals, schools, families and communities.

Tom Macready - Trustee and Director

Tom MacreadyPrior to his present role with the Foundation, Tom was a Local Authority educational psychologist in Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. In 2003, Tom was responsible for introducing a Restorative Justice initiative into three schools in Milton Keynes. A DVD of this work was produced in 2005 and sold throughout the UK. The present emphasis on applying 'Restorative Principles in Practice' reflects the evolution of this initiative and a commitment to developing social relationships that are respectful, engaging and inclusive. In recognising the importance of social learning for personal development, Tom has helped to extend this initiative to focus on the process of building and maintaining co-operative relationships for schools, families and communities.
