Survey Results 2021

A series of surveys are being developed by the team to get an initial idea of what former children of Centrepoint Community would like to see happen to bring about restorative change. The results will be published on this page as they are made available. 


The first survey was completed in July 2021. This survey is now closed and the results are attached below.

Survey 1 - Initial Screening (July 2021)


Respondents: 28

Q1 - How do you feel about the idea of a restorative action process for ex-children of Centrepoint?

28/28 responded to this question.

Opposed = 1

Unsure = 3

Neutral = 2

Quite interested = 7 (25% of the respondents)

Very interested = 15 (53.57% of the respondents)


Q2 - Interest in further contact

24/28 responded to this question


Interested in contact and being informed but not in restorative action process = 3

Interested in being a part of the restoration process but not to be involved in shaping what this could look like = 7

Want to be involved in shaping what the restoration process could look like = 14 (58.33% of respondents)


Q3 - Likelihood of participation in restorative action process

25/28 responded to this question

Very unlikely = 1

Somewhat unlikely = 3

Somewhat likely = 9

Very likely = 12 (48% of respondents)

Q4 - Preferred method of contact

28/28 responded to this question

Phone = 4

Email = 24

Centrepoint Restoration Website = 14

Zoom = 9

Face to face = 4

Messenger = 8


Q5 - Level of support needed

15/28 responded to this question


Phone call = 4

Support to access counselling = 3

FB Group = 6 (40%)

Email = 8 (53%)

Face to face conversation = 5 (33%)

Zoom conversation = 5 (33%)


Q6 - Age when at Centrepoint

27/28 responded to this question

Child (0-12 years) = 11 (41%)

Teenager (13-17 years) = 12 (44%)

Young Adult (18-25) = 1

Adult (25 +) = 3


78% of respondents are interested or very interested in a restorative action process. The majority of respondents both want to be involved in shaping what this process could look like and are likely to participate in the restorative action (obviously this may depend on the end result with regard to the shape that takes place. The majority of respondents prefer email for both contact and support, but there was a spread of preferences for different contact / communication / support mediums, so this will have to be managed. The majority of respondents were either a child or a teenager when at Centrepoint.

Survey 2 - Follow-up (August 2021)


The link to Survey 2 will be sent to those who responded to Survey 1 and provided the team with a contact email address. Some respondents to Survey 1 stated they would like to be part of the restoration process - but did not provide any contact details for further contact. If you think you might have failed to provide an email, or would like to complete Survey 2 and have not received the link, please let us know by sending an email to outlining the issue.

The results of Survey 2 will be published in an anonymised format on this page once they become available.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by mud and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and short-coming; but does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotion; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
