The UK’s use of immigration detention is growing. At any one time, there are around 5,000 people in immigration detention across the UK. The newest detention centre, IRC The Verne, will be the second largest in the country. It will hold 580 immigration detainees, without time limit, for administrative purposes.
Join us to find out how you can help those detained.
• Ali McGinley, Director, Association of Visitors to Immigration Detainees
• Andrew Wilson, Morton Hall Visitors Group
• Tamsin Alger, Casework Manager, Detention Action
• A former detainee will talk about his experiences of detention
Come along to find out more about the realities of indefinite immigration detention in the UK, what life will be like for those held at the Verne, and how you can help by getting involved in setting up a local visitors group to support them.
