FairChecks is a movement calling for a fresh start for the UK’s outdated criminal records disclosure system.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We want a full review of this unfair and outdated system.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
Remove criminal records for cautions
Wipe the slate clean for childhood offences
Stop forcing people to reveal short prison sentences forever
The FairChecks movement is led by Transform Justice and Unlock.
Transform Justice is a national charity working for a fair, humane, open and effective justice system.
Unlock is a national independent advocacy charity that supports, speaks up and campaigns for people facing stigma, prejudice and discrimination because of their criminal record.
If you need advice about your specific circumstances, please contact Unlock’s advice helpline.
