If you’ve got a criminal record we’d love to hear your story. Whether it inspires others through our online resources or helps us address inequalities at a policy level, your experiences are invaluable to us.
Through our policy & campaign work, we work with government departments and other organisations to address systemic and structural issues. We’re always looking to understand the challenges that people with convictions are facing. This is where we need your help, so that we can better challenge unfair policies and practices. We have a list of specific issues that we’re proactively seeking personal experiences and evidence on. If you can help please get in touch.
