BID's work on children and detention
Since 2002, BID has been campaigning to end the immigration detention of children and their famillies. In 2011, we published research on the detention of children - read more about this here. With the Refugee Children's Consortium, we have published a briefing outlining our concerns about child detention and the new family returns process - click here for more details .
Detention can also have a devastating impact on children when their parents are detained, and they remain in the community, separated from their parents.
