The post-Covid-19 landscape for delivery of services by voluntary organisations for people in the criminal justice system
Clinks response: Women and Equalities Committee inquiry into Covid-19 and the impact on people with protected characteristics
In this response, we focus on the impact that Covid-19 has had on women, black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people and older people in contact with the criminal justice system – particularly those in prison.
Clinks responded to the Health and Social Care Committee’s call for evidence on delivering core NHS and care services during the pandemic and beyond.
Clinks responded to the Centre for Mental Health’s call for evidence to contribute towards a review to guide the future of mental health care in prison.
Voluntary organisations led by BAME people have set out five areas for action that HMPPS must take in order to address the challenges of BAME-led organisations in the criminal justice system.
