Submission to the Legal and Social Issues Committee in support of Spent Convictions Legislation

We have provided a submission to the Legal and Social Issues Committee of the Victorian Parliament in support of Spent Convictions Legislation.

With this legislation, Victoria has an important opportunity to learn from other jurisdictions and to be a leader in expanding the attainability of a second chance, developing a scheme that genuinely pursues the values articulated in the Inquiry’s terms of reference namely; transparency, fairness, rehabilitation and reintegration and community safety and wellbeing.

Our submission includes eighteen recommendations for consideration in establishing a Spent Convictions Scheme in Victoria.   Read our full submission by clicking here.
