  • PPMI research: we are currently researching the effect of maintaining innocence on parole board decisions for release or progression to an open prison.  If you know a prisoner who has had one or more ‘knock-backs’ from the parole board, please ask them to write to us for information and a consent form. Evidence from a broad range of prisoners who find themselves in this situation is vital for the success of our research.
