Have your say – fill out our short survey!
People with convictions face many barriers to work on leaving prison, but the inability to find paid work can have all kinds of knock on effects including becoming homeless.
The House of Commons Work and Pensions Select Committee is currently running an inquiry into support for ex-offenders and has asked for the thoughts and experiences of people with convictions and those organisations working with them. Unlock has already submitted it’s response to the inquiry but we’re pleased to see that the Committee would like to hear directly from people with experience.
Use this opportunity to directly inform the work of Parliament and potentially improve the support that people receive.

The closing date for the survey is 15th July 2016
