Congratulations to Nim Ong! She was granted an award as ‘Champion of
Justice’ at the London Legal Support Trust’s Tenth Anniversary celebrations in October. This award celebrates people who are crucial to delivering essential free legal services as “Unsung Heroes”.
Nim was one of the first group of prisoner Peer Advisers whom PAS trained in conjunction with St Giles Trust, to establish our prisoner-led prison law advice clinic at HMP Send five years ago.
Since then, Nim has naturally assumed the role of clinic co-ordinator due to her unfailing dedication to the task of promoting and running the PAS advice clinic.
The award was collected from Dominic Grieve QC on Nim’s behalf by Naomi Lumsdaine, our Women Prisoners’ Caseworker. Naomi subsequently presented the award to Nim herself in HMP Send.
