Some examples of people we’ve helped

Looking back over the last couple of months, we’ve written up a few examples of the people we’ve helped.

We hope they give a good idea of how we help people.

However, more importantly than our role, we think that these examples show how people with convictions are able to overcome some of the barriers that have been put in their way due to their criminal record.

We’ve posted the examples below as case studies in the support section of our website:


AndyHaving an application for social housing refused on the basis of a spent conviction

CharlotteA lack of understanding of the filtering rules meant I was almost refused a place at university

KellyHaving an insurance policy cancelled due to a comparison company not providing full disclosure

LarryWith little support from the jobcentre or probation after leaving prison, finding employment was extremely difficult

WilliamGetting information recorded incorrectly on police records removed
