HOW YOU CAN HELP END THE IPP SENTENCE

 

TALK TO MPS

Speak to MPs about the IPP sentence: tell them why change is needed and what can be done.

VOLUNTEER AS AN EXPERT

The Justice Select Committee recommends the appointment of an expert group to plan a resentencing exercise. Tell the Justice Secretary you will help (and tell us too).

VOLUNTEER TO RESENTENCE

Resentencing would take judicial resources. Do you have time to help? UNGRIPP is compiling a list of judges who would volunteer their time to help a resentencing exercise.

ASK MPS TO SIGN EDM 591

A debate on the Justice Select Committee report will be crucial. Ask MPs to sign the EDM calling for a debate.

"Along the way there were lost files, rejected applications due to lack of information and a lack of any real systematic approach to supporting the rehabilitation needs of my brother.  He finally gave up hope of ever being released, he was found hanging, alone in his cell having never achieved the freedom he tried so hard to get."
