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.
