UNLOCK is an independent award-winning charity, providing trusted information, advice and advocacy for people with criminal convictions

UNLOCK provides a voice and support for people who are facing stigma and obstacles because of their criminal record, often long after they have served their sentence

It was founded by a group of former prisoners who wanted to use their experience so that people with convictions would have better opportunities to move on in their lives.

UNLOCK's Disclosure Calculator establishes when criminal convictions become "spent" under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

Their Information Hub is the country's most comprehensive source of online self-help information on a wide range of issues that criminal convictions can affect.

Recruit! is a website from Unlock that supports UK employers to recruit people with convictions and helps them to deal with criminal records fairly.

The Forum is a self-supporting community for law-abiding people with convictions - share information, advice and experience on moving on with a criminal record with others and provide/receive peer advice.
