IPRT is an evidence-based advocacy organisation, which achieves reform through campaigning and influencing policy.
It is extremely important to our work that we hear from prisoners, their families, and others, about issues that are affecting them. This greatly informs our work. However, IPRT is unable to represent or support individual prisoners or their families. Contact details for organisations which may be able to offer assistance are included below.
You can read about our work in the area of prisoners' families here: "Picking Up the Pieces": The Rights and Needs of Children and Families Affected by Imprisonment.
