New website to be launched later this week

We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be launching a new core Unlock website later this week. As part of this development, we’ve had to take our old website down while we transfer the sites over, which means that neither our main website or our online forum will be available for the next couple of days.

In the meantime, our other websites (Information Hub, Disclosure Calculator and Online Magazine) will continue to run as normal, and these will be unaffected by the launch of the new site.

From later this week, our new core website will be available at and will form part of our set of websites which includes:

  1. (available later this week) – Our main website, explaining more about us as a charity, the services that we provide, and our current areas of focus
  2. – We maintain this information hub as the country’s most comprehensive source of online self-help information on a wide range of issues that criminal convictions can affect.
  3. (available again later this week) – An online peer-to-peer forum enabling people with convictions to support one another
  4. – A tool that enables you to work out when your convictions become spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974
  5. – An online magazine for and by people with convictions

Once it’s launched, we’d be delighted to hear your views on what you think to our new site!
