Princess Anne visited a youth offending unit.

Enfield Council welcomed the royal, who was in town to commend it for its work in 'restorative justice.'

The officers officially received its Restorative Service Quality Mark from Her Royal Highness, who is a patron of the Restorative Justice Council.

Enfield Council’s leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said: “I would like to congratulate the whole team which has shown its unwavering commitment to provide top-quality restorative practice in Enfield.

“We are pleased to welcome Her Royal Highness to Enfield.

“We will endeavour to continue delivering the highest-standards in restorative justice ensuring safer communities in the borough.”

Restorative justice brings those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for the harm into communication, helping everyone affected to find a positive way forward.

The quality mark recognises the unit’s work to rehabilitate young offenders and help victims deal with the impact of crime.

Only two youth offending teams in London including Enfield have received this ‘kitemark’.

Before the presentation, The Princess met with staff in Claverings Estate in Edmonton as well as one of the unit’s volunteers.

She also met police officers and some young adults who have been through the restorative process.

The event was also attended by the chief executive of Enfield Council, Mr. Ian Davis, Cllr Caliskan, and deputy lieutenant of Enfield Mrs Ann Cable.
