The Detention Forum are looking for volunteers!


Our amazing friends in the Detention Forum – an advocacy network of organisations who challenge immigration detention –  are looking for enthusiastic, curious and thoughtful individuals to be part of the their growing volunteer team.


They are looking for people with a deep interest in and commitment to migrants rights movement and challenging immigration detention. Core tasks include

  • take part in volunteer team discussions about our work, how we are communicating and contribute ideas, thoughts and help, in order to improve how the Detention Forum does its work;
  • ensure our Twitter account (@DetentionForum) is actively disseminating accurate and relevant information about immigration detention and communicate our asks and key message in a way that gathers more support for our call for change (in practical terms, this means volunteers take turns to be responsible for managing our Twitter account one day a week, but this can be done by programming tweets in advance if you prefer);
  • scanning for immigration detention related news to disseminate over Twitter

You can find more information about what is entailed and how to apply here. Deadline Monday 5th March.


On reaching the UK, people face a hostile environment. Without help, many will be forcibly sent back to the wars, persecution and misery they have fled.

Your donation will help us to help people in their struggle for the right to remain in the UK, and to campaign for migration justice
