We are delighted to announce our new relationship with the global law firm, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. Akin Gump has provided us with a group of lawyers who will join us at clinics and take on cases on a pro bono basis.
With Akin Gump’s help, we are now able to expand our clinics to HMP Eastwood Park and give legal advice and representation to the mothers there to help them rebuild their maternal relationships.
“In light of the increasing impact on families and individuals of funding cuts to legal aid and key public services, we had for some time been looking for opportunities to assist families in need, and also additionally for projects focused upon the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners. Not Beyond Redemption presented a unique opportunity to support both these goals, and to provide meaningful practical help to incarcerated women, and their children and families affected by their imprisonment. We were impressed by the vision, care and commitment of Camilla and the team at Not Beyond Redemption; echoed in the unequivocal endorsement of their work by the FLBA, leading family law barristers’ chambers, and the President of the Family Division. We are delighted to be working alongside them.”- Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld
Thank you, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, for joining us on our journey to provide pro bono family law advice and representation to imprisoned mothers in the UK to ensure that no mother in prison loses access to her children.
