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:


Darren – “An employer carrying out an ineligible check led to my job offer being withdrawn”

Pippa “Knowing what an employer would see about my criminal record made it much easier to disclose my conviction” 

Brinley“I successfully challenged an ineligible DBS check and kept my job”

Yuki“Hearing that my husband had got his visa to visit Australia made our holiday”

Davina“I was accepted onto a nursing course despite my conviction”

Terence “An intervention by social services may have ruined my chance of a new relationship”
