Are you in detention?

If you are in detention, or supporting someone who has been detained, it can be difficult to access accurate information. The first few days in detention, in particular, can be confusing, upsetting and difficult. We are here to help.

If possible, try to find out how you can make contact with the AVID member organisation that provides support in the centre in which you are held. You can find a full list here. You can contact them directly for support. Alternatively, you can contact AVID to be put in touch with the right group.

Some useful links are below. Feel free to contact AVID for more information.
