Scottish Detainee Visitors
Set up in 2002, Scottish Detainee Visitors (SDV) befriend and support people being held at Dungavel detention centre near Strathaven, South Lanarkshire.
Based in Glasgow, SDV visits detainees on a regular basis and also run a monthly drop-in support service at the centre.
The organisation also works with a wider network of organisations in Scotland and the UK supporting asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants to ensure people in detention are treated fairly, and to advocate for change in immigration detention.
For more information about volunteering with SDV or, if you are in detention, about receiving the support of a visitor, please contact the organisation directly
