Reprieve is a legal action non-governmental organisation (NGO).

We are investigators, lawyers and campaigners fighting for justice. We defend people who are facing human rights abuses, often at the hands of powerful governments.

We investigate.

We uncover evidence and reveal the truth about human rights abuses.

We litigate.

We challenge human rights abuses in the courts of law – in the UK and around the world.

We campaign.

The Reprieve community fights to put the spotlight on cases of injustice. We amplify those cases in the media and by working with Governments to improve legislation.

Our investigators, lawyers and campaigners fight for those who need it most – people on death row, people held without charge or trial, people tortured and people targeted by illegal and lethal drone attacks.

You can find out more about how you can get involved and join the fight against injustice here.

For me, Reprieve was the reason for my freedom. I wish to express my gratitude to all those who support this organisation and were agents in my safe release and return to my family.
