WELCOME

We believe that returning citizens deserve the very best chance for a fresh start after they have served the time for their crime.

The Robin Corbett Award for Prisoner Re-Integration was established by members of Lord Corbett’s family in conjunction with the Prison Reform Trust. It is now administered by The Corbett Foundation, a not-for-profit social enterprise.

Applications for the 2020 Robin Corbett Award are now open!

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 2020 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!

NEWS FLASH:
Applications for the Robin Corbett Award 2021 are now open for your charity, social enterprise, or CIC.

MORE ABOUT ROBIN

THE MAN BEHIND THE AWARD

Lord Robin Corbett was the respected former Chairman of the Home Affairs Committee and for 10 years, until his death in February 2012, Robin Corbett chaired the All Party Parliamentary Penal Affairs Group, to which the Prison Reform Trust provides the Secretariat.

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

The Corbett family are proud to continue the legacy of Robin.

 “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.”
