Our Impact

We are incredibly proud of everything we have achieved together in the past twenty-five years: 

Reprieve works all over the world to challenge the death penalty and support people who face some of the most horrific human rights abuses imaginable carried out in the name of “counter-terrorism” or “national security”.  

Our work is complex, challenging, and can take many years to bear fruit. However, with your support we have made huge strides in our efforts to end the death penalty and seek justice for victims of appalling human rights abuses. 

Without the support of the Reprieve community, our work simply wouldn’t be possible.

Thank you.

2023 was another extraordinary year for Reprieve. Together, we have achieved: 

Our work does not stop here…

Throughout 2024, we will continue to strive to uphold justice and the rule of law, hold power to account, fight unlawful state abuses, and defend lives across the world. 

We will:  

  • Limit the use of the death penalty across the world by undertaking investigations, casework and litigation on cases with the potential to create systemic change; 
  • Engage institutions, governments, civil society, corporations and the public in the fight for abolition of the death penalty and extreme human rights abuses worldwide. 
  • Stop ongoing rendition, unlawful detention, torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment associated with “counter-terrorism” and “national security. 
  • Shine a light on UK complicity in abuses, and expose and challenge government policies which may lead to abuses. 

We are truly privileged to work alongside an incredible team of staff, partners, lawyers, campaigners, investigators and supporters from around the world. Together, we are achieving meaningful change for our clients, and effectively challenging the wider systems that enabled the abuses they face. Thank you for your support.

I was regularly tortured. I lost all my freedom, dignity and was starting to lose hope. Reprieve went above and beyond in the fight for my release. I would not be free without Reprieve.
