Not Beyond Redemption is honoured to announce that Sir Andrew McFarlane has agreed to become our Patron.
The President of the Family Division, Sir Andrew McFarlane, confirmed his decision after accompanying our Chair of Trustees, Bruce Mauleverer KC, and our supervising legal team to HMP Send. Sir Andrew attended one of our clinics, meeting a woman who needed our assistance. He also met some of the female prisoners who we represent and was given a tour of the prison by the governor, Mark Creaven.
Sir Andrew was called to the Bar in 1977 and took Silk in 1998. He was appointed a High Court judge in 2005, a Lord Justice of Appeal in 2011, and became President of the Family Division of the High Court of England and Wales in July 2018.
Bruce Mauleverer KC, Chair of the charity Not Beyond Redemption, has said how delighted he is that Sir Andrew has accepted the Board’s offer for him to become Patron of the charity. “Sir Andrew, who has a wealth of experience in family law, is committed to the values and aims of Not Beyond Redemption; and he has seen for himself the remarkable difference that the charity can and does make to the relationships between mothers in prison and their children.”
We are thrilled to welcome Sir Andrew McFarlane on board.
