Any foreign national in the UK can be detained under immigration at the end of their custodial sentence. They are often detained in prisons and treated as if they were serving prisoners. They receive no legal advice and have no access to mobile phones.
Our latest Legal Advice Survey found that just 7% of people held in prison before being moved to a detention centre said they had received immigration advice whilst in prison.
Your donation could help cover the travel costs for our team to visit people detained in prisons and provide face-to-face legal advice to help them fight for their freedom.
