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:


Arthur – Challenging the results of a basic criminal record check carried out by Disclosure Scotland instead of the DBS enabled me to keep my job

Clive – A potentially ineligible criminal record check led to the DBS considering barring me from working with children and vulnerable adults

Geraldine – Getting clear advice enabled me to successfully challenge an ineligible DBS check
