Response to the Women and Equalities Committee sub-inquiry
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.
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.
