Breaking the cycle of crisis and crime

bird in flight

We champion long-term solutions for justice reform that tackle the root causes of repeat, low-level crime and support people’s journeys towards better lives.

Through amplifying the voices of those who have experienced the criminal justice system, our mission is to prevent individuals from being criminalised due to unmet health and social needs, such as poverty, homelessness, mental ill health, problems with drugs and alcohol or domestic abuse.

What we work on

Policing & diversion

We strive for fairer and improved policing, prioritising early diversion of individuals with unmet health and social needs.

Multiple disadvantage

We advocate for systems and services that provide timely and holistic support to those facing multiple, co-occuring needs.

Courts & sentencing

We campaign for equitable access to justice that supports fair and effective sentencing.


We champion probation reform for lasting change, offering individuals trapped in the revolving door the best chances to turn their lives around.
