Not Beyond Redemption is a charity providing free family legal advice to women who are in prison, or who have left prison. We are a team of specialist family lawyers and volunteers who focus on helping to re-establish critical access and relationships between mothers and their children.
Our scope of work is varied and ranges from helping women understand a way through the myriad of legal matters, including understanding their rights, to writing legal letters and representing them in courts across the country – all on a pro bono basis. Support is extended to the families of the women and continues after the mothers have been released from prison, for as long as they need us. This could even be up to the child’s adulthood.
Incarceration, access and their systemic impacts on individuals and their families, are age-old challenges for society; but we are becoming better informed all the time and can use this knowledge to raise awareness and promote long term change. Not Beyond Redemption is committed to reconnecting these women with their children in order to help them all pave the way for a better future. We look beyond the crime and the sentence, to the person and their children.
We are thrilled to have won ‘Outstanding Initiative’ at the CSR Charity / Initiative of the Year Citywealth Brand Management and Reputation Awards 2020.
