Detention Action

Detention Action visits and supports people being detained in Harmondsworth and Colnbrook detention centres, near Heathrow Airport, as well as providing welfare support workshops at several London prisons and The Verne detention centre in Portland, Dorset.

They also campaign for an end to immigration detention without time limit and to the practice of detaining people because they have claimed asylum, lobbying government, producing reports and briefings on detention issues and organising awareness-raising events.

The organisation is also a member of the Asylum Rights Campaign (ARC) Detention Sub-group and Detention Forum.
