The Detention Forum is a network of over 30 NGOs working to challenge the legitimacy of the immigration detention system as used in the UK today. Having agreed its joint strategy, it will become a membership-based network from May 2013.
One of its Working Groups, the Working Group on Vulnerable People, is looking for a volunteer researcher who will help the Group’s project, ‘Vulnerability in detention: policy and practice’.
