FairChecks is a movement calling for a fresh start for the UK’s outdated criminal records disclosure system. We believe that people who have already served their sentence deserve the chance to work towards a better future for themselves and their families.

We want a full review of this unfair and outdated system. Our three key asks for a fairer system are

  1. Remove criminal records for cautions

  2. Wipe the slate clean for childhood offences 

  3. Stop forcing people to reveal short prison sentences forever 

The FairChecks movement is led by Transform Justice and Unlock.
