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
