About Reprieve

Reprieve delivers justice and saves lives, from death row to Guantánamo Bay.

We investigate, we litigate and we educate, working on the frontline, providing legal support to prisoners unable to pay for it themselves.

Reprieve is an international human rights NGO with offices in London and New York. We promote the rule of law around the world, and secure each person’s right to a fair trial. And in doing so, we save lives. Reprieve prioritises the cases of prisoners accused of the most extreme crimes, such as acts of murder or terrorism, as it is in such cases that human rights are most likely to be jettisoned or eroded. Reprieve focuses on cases involving the world’s most powerful governments, especially those that should be upholding the highest standards when it comes to fair trials. Watch Linda Carty, a British grandmother mother on death row in Texas, thank Reprieve for its work.

We were recently shortlisted for the Charity Times Award where we won in the "Advice, Support and Advocacy" category. This award was for the work Reprieve had done in investigating and challenging the use of drone attacks on civillian populations in Pakistan and elsewhere.
