In the last year, our Information Hub website was used over 1.3 million times and we received feedback saying:
“Totally anonymous way of accessing important information in relation to a spent conviction and disclosure. Extremely helpful and reassuring. Sincere thanks.”
“Your site has made it clear to me what the law is… and how best to challenge it if I think it’s wrong… I am now in a position to know my rights and what to do.”
We are pleased that the website has been useful, but we think some people are missing vital, relevant information – especially because people don’t know what they don’t know so can’t possibly know what to look for!
We need £6500 to improve the way people find information on the website. We want to make it so that you can search for your situation (e.g living with an unspent conviction) and find all the information you need.
We are delighted to announce that independent funder J Leon Philanthropy has guaranteed to provide half of what we need. Will you help fund the rest? Please, please donate what you can through our Big Give page and help us help more people to move on with their lives.
