IPRT - Irish Penal Reform Trust

Who we are

We are an independent charity founded in 1994 by a group of citizens concerned about the abuses of human rights in Irish prisons.

IPRT is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors, made up of a minimum of six members with expertise in a range of areas relevant to penal reform. The Board focuses on the broader strategic goals of the organisation, above the day-to-day work of the office. Six members of the Board are elected at the organisation’s AGM and further members may be co-opted by the Board.

IPRT is committed to ensuring that the Board is representative of Irish society, is gender balanced and is an expert Board that includes the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully lead the organisation.

The day-to-day work of the office is currently carried out by the IPRT staff, greatly supported in our work by a team of dedicated interns.

The office is based in the MACRO Building, 1 Green Street, Dublin 7, Ireland.
