The research was funded by the Strategic Legal Fund and carried out in partnership with public law firm Deighton Pierce Glynn. The report will be submitted to the Home Office as part of their impending review of the NRPF policy. We are very grateful to experts from Oxford University’s COMPAS, the NRPF Network and The Children’s Society for forming our independent advisory board for the project.

Policy Change


We are using our research work and data collection to influence policy.
We are doing this through strategic litigation. One of our cases recently had a hearing at the High Court.
We are also building constructive working relationships with MPs, including by participating in an All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on NRPF.
