BID works with immigration detainees to advise on bail and release from detention. Generally, BID's caseworkers cannot cannot offer legal advice on general asylum or immigration matters, or help you reverse a decision that you will be removed from the UK. However, in 2014 BID began a small Deportation Advice Project, which provides free legal advice and representation to people who are challenging their deportation - click here for details.
