We’re heartbroken that the Nationality & Borders Bill has become law but we’re not giving up. We’ve been inspired & emboldened by the thousands of people who fought against this inhumane bill. Together we make the world a better place.
We urge everyone who fought this bill not to lose sight of the power they hold to build the compassionate and supportive communities that the government is so desperate to tear apart and isolate people from.
Since 1999 BID have secured bail for over 65,000 people. The provisions in Nationality & Borders Bill will create more detainable and deportable people so support for our work from the public is more important than ever.
Here are 6 ways you can help BID today:
From funding our advice line to paying for expert reports for deportation appeals, donations to BID enable people locked up under immigration powers to exercise their human rights. Supporting BID helps to reunite families, get vulnerable people out of detention and keep people who are British in all but paperwork in the UK. Find out more about donating here.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of BID. Each year our small team are supported by over 70 volunteers. From casework volunteering to making films if you have skills you would like to turn to helping people get out of detention we want to here from you.
