Yes, we support the rights of offenders while they are in prison. Mental disorders are overrepresented in prisoners – it is estimated that 1 in 7 prisoners has a serious mental disorder. Prison itself may increase the incidence of mental disorder but there are other factors which affect the high incidence of mental disorder within the prison population. Prisoners are more at risk of mortality, suicide, self-harm, violence and victimisation compared to the general population. We can support solicitors providing representation to prisoners who are appealing their sentence or conviction, questioning the category of prison in which they are imprisoned and seeking transfer to another prison. Our experts are also experienced in providing evidence to the Parole Board.
