We produce and submit written responses to proposals and consultations from policy makers and legislatures on issues which affect people with criminal records.

By providing responses and submissions to decision makers, we strengthen the voice of people with convictions. In particular, we ensure that we include the voices of that that might not have the capacity to submit their own response. We also encourage individuals the submit their own responses too so that a broad range of perpsectives are covered.

When preparing our responses, we consult and collect evidence. Sign up to our mailing list or follow us on twitter to learn about opportunities to get involved as and when they arise.
