Detention facts and figures

AVID produces regular statistical updates on the use of detention in the UK. We have found it very hard to find this information in one place, so we now produce our own briefings based on information from the Home Office official statistics and other sources. 

 

AVID has also been collating information via Freedom of Information requests on the numbers and locations of those held in prison under immigration acts.
