BID's work on children and detention

  • Detention of children

    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

  • Separation of families

    Detention can also have a devastating impact on children when their parents are detained, and they remain in the community, separated from their parents.
