  Endorsed Provider - Quality assured and approved by IEP



Since 2000, Unlock has been helping people with convictions to move on in their lives by providing information, advice and advocacy, delivered by people who also have convictions and understand the challenges they face.

As leading experts, Unlock directly support over 5,000 people each year by telephone, letter and email with a further 200,000 accessing our free online information. Unlock’s online community, The Forum, enables people to support and encourage each other by sharing knowledge, experiences and information.  Written by and for people with convictions, Unlock’s online magazine, The Record, reports on news affecting people with convictions, publishes inspirational stories and latest need-to-know information.

As well as helping individuals, Unlock also work with employers, banks, insurers and politicians to change their systems so that people with convictions have fair access to essential services and opportunities, and don’t remain excluded.

Unlock doesn’t do things for people; they work with them so they can assert their personal independence.  As a result of their work, people with convictions are able to educate themselves, secure and maintain work, use basic financial services like bank accounts and insurance, support their families and better able to reach their goals.
