We bring national and international criminal justice stakeholders’ attention to the human rights of persons living with disabilities for system-wide reforms within the judiciary, police, prison and probation agencies.
We advocate and provide practical guidance for reform so prisons and other detention facilities can uphold the human rights and better meet the needs of persons with disabilities, using relevant international human rights standards.
We promote alternatives to imprisonment for persons with disabilities, at both the pre-trial stage and as a sentence, in line with international standards.
We provide training for prison staff on how to uphold the rights of persons with disabilities.
To inform our work we engage other civil society organisations working on the rights of persons with disabilities and support them to include those in detention within their work.
We support detention monitoring bodies to ensure that issues for people with disabilities in the facilities they monitor are identified and addressed.
