This is an evolving situation that we are monitoring closely. This page will be updated as our approach develops and according to our capacity.

BID’s Rwanda Project comes as a response to the government’s policy to remove asylum seekers to Rwanda to have their asylum claims processed there, and the decision to hold those people in detention. 

People in detention affected by this policy still have the option to apply for bail until the admissibility of their U.K. asylum claim is determined. This is where BID’s Rwanda Project comes in. 

The project will mobilise qualified and trainee solicitors to draft grounds for immigration bail applications and endeavour to provide representation.

If you have been detained as a result of the government’s Rwanda policy or are supporting someone who has, we want to hear from you. 

We’re accepting referrals for anyone in immigration detention who has been served with a Notice of Intent (NOI) by the Home Office and who is unrepresented for bail. 

To make a referral or to refer yourself, contact [email protected] and provide the detained individual details and any available documentation, including – as a minimum – the following:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Nationality
  • Contact telephone number

All referrals to the Rwanda Project will remain exclusively BID’s clients for the purposes of their detention case, and BID will remain responsible for their bail case at all times whilst it is instructed.
