Time for change

We are developing a partnership with prison experts, researchers, campaigners and policy specialists, to make the case for a smaller prison system.

As the pace of social, economic and technological change is quickening, our approach to law and order is stuck in the past. After years of legislative hyperactivity, there is an abundance of law, and an absence of order.

Our crisis-ridden prison system – it has more than doubled in size in a generation – is one of the clearest expressions of the problematic state we are in.

We are in the early stages of developing a manifesto for change, with events and other initiatives to follow later in the year and into 2022.
