About this organisation

Sensible Sentencing encompasses two very distinct trusts and purposes. The Sensible Sentencing Group Trust (SSGT) is a charitable trust with the specific purpose of supporting victims of serious violent and/or sexual crime and homicide.
The Sensible Sentencing Trust (SST) is distinct to the SSGT and is also a registered charitable trust but, unlike the SSGT, does not have donee status with the IRD.
This is because the trust unashamedly exists to advocate on behalf of the victims of serious violent and/or sexual crime and homicide in New Zealand, with a view to ensuring effective sentencing and penal policies that reduce re-offending and ultimately keep the public safe. All donations received by the trust assist our volunteers to travel to meet with politicians about the SST’s policy wishlist (such as bail and parole reform, three strikes and public offenders database), attend select committee sessions, educate our membership database regarding SST policies and activities, and run lobbying campaigns such as Christies’s Law.
