A criminal record can be a real obstacle in getting on in life. But what we don't know is if people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups face additional barriers that white people don't.

Unlock is an independent charity for people with criminal records. We're collecting evidence that will help us to better understand the barriers that BAME groups face in terms of their criminal record.

Our focus is mainly on the issues that people face after they've received their criminal record. However, we're also keen to identify any issues that BAME groups might face earlier on in the process of getting a criminal record that have an impact later on in terms of the criminal record and its consequences on them.

So what do we want to know?
We're keen to hear from a wide range of voices, not just those that have been to prison. So, whether you've been to prison, given probation, fined or given a caution, we want to hear from you.

We've put together a short online survey for people with a criminal record - it should only take 10-15 minutes to complete, and all responses will be confidential and no personal details shared externally.

You can find out more details about the survey on our website.

If you know of people or organisations that might be interested, please share this with them.

Thank you for your support.
