"Why are you leaving us here to die?"

One woman's cry from Yarl's Wood Detention Centre, following the confirmation of a COVID 19 case inside the centre. 

For the many hundreds of people in immigration detention, anxiety about COVID 19 is magnified as they remain locked up, alone, and in prison environments that make even the most basic of social distancing measures impossible. We are working extremely hard to make sure our members, who provide support in every detention centre across the UK, have the information and support they need to ensure people in detention know they are not alone. 

Our members are supporting people who are extremely anxious, who are feeling desperate, and that they've been left behind as the rest of the UK takes steps to protect itself. 

If you can, please consider making a donation to enable us to continue this support at this time of crisis. 

Thank you for your support!
