About

Proudly sponsored by the Chrysalis Foundation,  every year we split £10,000 between 3 charities who support re-integration in local communities for returning citizens. Presentation of the Awards is usually at the House of Lords and after things get back to near-normal, we hope to return there.

Winners of the 2021 Awards were delayed due to Covid-19 restrictions, but see who they are HERE.

Alongside this Award we have also launched the Robin Corbett Award Growth Fund, which donates up to £10,000 to charities who have core funding but struggle with day to day expenses. The number of recipients will be determined by our success at fund raising!

MORE ABOUT ROBIN

THE MAN BEHIND THE AWARD

As an MP, Robin Corbett’s Private Member’s Bill guaranteed lifetime anonymity for victims of rape in courts and the media. He was also the respected former Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee and, as Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, was for 10 years until his death in February 2012, the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Penal Affairs Group.

The Award was inaugurated at a celebration of Robin’s life in June 2012. The first Award was presented a year later at the House of Lords.

The Corbett family are proud to continue his legacy:

“Prison isn’t full of bad people. It’s full of people who’ve done bad things and most need a second chance to change their lives.” – Robin Corbett

DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE

“ Education and rehabilitation - for which Robin Corbett campaigned so vigorously during his ten years as chair of the All-Party Prison Reform Group - are the only ways to give offenders the chance of changing their lives.”

Cherie Blair
QC

“The Award is an important part of the creation of high quality rehabilitative opportunities for prisoners. Small scale, local projects provide a vital gateway back to normal, daily life, and help prisoners to resist further offending”

Lord Carlile of Berriew
CBE QC

“This award honours the wonderful life work of Robin Corbett who wanted education to be a new beginning for prisoners and a pathway to a lifetime of self respect and opportunity.”
