Our Work

  • We hold public meetings and conferences with speakers from the judiciary, the legal profession, academia and the media.
  • We engage in dialogue with the Parole Board and the CCRC.
  • We co-hosted a high-level seminar with the Parole Board, which also then ceased using the derogatory term ‘deniers’ for prisoners who maintain their innocence.
  • We offer training to solicitors, barristers and legal representatives working with prisoners where maintaining innocence is impeding their progress.

We are unable to take up individual cases but we welcome hearing from prisoners who find themselves penalised by a system which does not acknowledge their stance.  This information helps to inform our work. which has also included collating a set of case studies to illustrate the innate unfairness of the present system.
