FairChecks is a movement calling for a fresh start for the outdated criminal records disclosure system in England and Wales. 

Our mission is to make criminal record checks fairer so that everyone can contribute their talents to society. We do this by building support for change, empowering affected individuals to take action, and persuading the government to act.

The FairChecks movement is led by Transform Justice and Unlock and funded by the abrdn Financial Fairness Trust.
