Our Nightmare before Christmas campaign was inspired by one of our clients Maria. Maria is a 36 year old EEA national who has lived in the UK since she was eight years old or as she put it “I am as English as my neighbours”. 

Detained and terrified of deportation, her nightmares led her to create this drawing of a dream catcher to hang above her bed and give her the courage to fight for her freedom. 

BID is a small, independent charity which is funded entirely by voluntary donations. Every penny that you donate this Christmas will go directly into our advice work, helping people like Maria to fight for their freedom.
