Geographical remit: 


We work with people in prison putting the power of the law in the hands of the poor. By providing high-quality legal advice, training, and education to those living and working in prison, we empower those most in need of justice to access it for themselves


  • By delivering legal training to prisoners.
  • We see the impact of our changemakers in the following way:
  • SHORT TERM: Provision of quality legal services for those who have no access to justice.
  • MEDIUM TERM: Reducing the impact of unjust laws that lead to unnecessary imprisonment.
  • LONG TERM: Prisoners and prison staff in positions to make, shape and implement the law.
