Australian Restorative Mapping

The NED Foundation has long had a strong commitment to an explicit restorative culture in both the way it works as an organisation and also how it relates to those with whom it works.
NED seeks to support and nurture restorative practice, and to this end, has established a restorative practice mapping site (link is external).
The site provides a platform for both individuals and organisations to represent their restorative engagement, and also to share their stories.
The information on the mapping site is provided by the individual or organisation, and their presence on the site is not an endorsement by the NED Foundation.
Should you wish to explore the possibility of yourself or your organisation having a presence on the mapping site, please contact Ian De Landelles, by using our contact form

NED Foundation Supported Projects

NED Foundation is looking for people whose values and goals align with ours. If you too have been asking ‘what does the world need now?’ and have come up with an idea for a project that will contribute to the evolution of transformational change, we would love to hear about it.

Both the environmental impacts and the way in which the issue affects the Aboriginal Community and their relationship with this site of significant spiritual significance have been considered The appeal they make is for a limit to be placed on brumbies in the park rather than to remove their presence entirely. The film supports the ongoing work of Richard Swain who continues to campaign.
