I am very grateful for all your great hard work that you all have put in for all my ongoing court hearings. I think it is a brilliant way to help mothers regain contact with their children. All your services have always been 100% polite, honest, and good results. Having a charity with these services to help their parents and children regain contact is so important. It gives people with a little hope for the future, a brighter future. With such kind helpful brilliant staff by Not Beyond Redemption. I am so grateful for your ongoing hard work going in each and every single court hearing. I hope this charity is forever more supported. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Mother in prison

Not Beyond Redemption is a unique and much-needed charity spearheaded by an admirable woman that aims to bring legal assistance to women in prison, to assist them with rebuilding or developing a relationship with their often estranged children. Over 17,000 children are separated from their mothers by imprisonment each year and 72% of women in prison are serving custodial sentences for a non-violent crime. Through the Sidley Pro Bono Fellowship, I was fortunate enough to spend 3 months at Not Beyond Redemption learning about these mothers, meeting them, filing court applications for them and attending hearings with them. My time at NBR was testament to the major difference that can be made to someone’s entire life when just one person decides they’re worthy of help.

NBR is an amazing charity, I feel blessed to have them supporting me.

I can’t begin to put into words how grateful I am for the entire team for giving me a second chance with my baby boy. If it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t be seeing him again you’ve fought my corner and supported me incredibly throughout the entire process. I know prison isn’t the best place to end up but looking back now I’m so grateful I ended up there because if I didn’t I wouldn’t be where I am now. From myself and speaking on behalf of Leo I am thankful to each and everyone of you for reuniting a Mother and a Son. I will never forget what you’ve done for me. Thank you a million times over you are all angels on earth. I’d also like to add that you’ve completely changed my life. NBR have given me that second chance I desperately needed and I’ll forever be grateful for that.

Not Beyond Redemption gave me hope when all hope was lost on my behalf. They have gone above and beyond for me and my son and have successfully provided me with an update on my son’s wellbeing. I will forever be eternally grateful for their services. They were polite, gentle, supportive, and kept me informed every step of the way. They are who they say they are and let you know you are Not beyond redemption. Thank you all so much.

I am so impressed with Not Beyond Redemption and I think it is amazing that a charity is picking up those that fall through the gap of not being able to obtain legal aid.

The opportunity to assist women in prison with the process of reconciling or establishing healthier and stronger relationships with their children and those that care for them has been immensely rewarding. Not only are the benefits for the children involved manifest, but it feels increasingly to me like an important part of the women’s own rehabilitation journey, to know that there are loving and joyful relationships for them both during their time in prison and to anticipate on their release.

I knew from the first meeting with you that you were going to fight hard for me. You were so passionate about what I should be getting custody wise. Then I met the others from the team and I did think they won’t be the same – sorry 🙂 But they all were!

At HMP Send we really value our partnership with Not Beyond Redemption. Separation from children can be the hardest part of being in prison for any women. But it is even harder when they face legal battles to see their children in custody or on release. Not Beyond Redemption steps into those most challenging situations, where appropriate, and provides specialist legal advice and representation, helping the women work towards the best outcomes for themselves and their children. Our women are full of praise for the support and expertise that Not Beyond Redemption provides.

Eventually I decided to take it back to court, because I’m a mother and want to see my daughter and be a part of her life. This is stressful sometimes and disheartening but you didn’t give up on me which gives me hope.
