Supporting torture victims worldwide

June 26 is UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture and is an opportunity for a global focus on helping torture victims and ending torture. The work of HM Inspectorate of Prisons is rooted in a commitment to prevent torture and ill-treatment in places of detention. Our regular, independent inspections of secure settings shine a light on places which are, by their nature, hidden from public view. Inspections therefore play a vital role in ensuring that ill-treatment is prevented.
