Archived Event: Practical and Compassionate Alternatives to Detention

This event has already taken place, and is shown here for information only.

Date: 16 May 2024

Time: 19:30-20:30

Venue: online

The Detention Forum is a network of over 50 NGOs, including City of Sanctuary, which works together to campaign to end immigration detention in the UK.

We have recently begun a new campaign for a supportive environment: a compassionate and practical alternative to immigration detention. There is a growing evidence base from a number of projects in the UK, some even funded by the Home Office and endorsed by the UNHCR.

Come and join a discussion about our vision of a society without the need for immigration detention with a community-based alternative, and the key arguments that we think we can use in building support for this campaign.

If you have ever been told there is no alternative to the government’s plans, then come to this session to hear our clear and compassionate alternative.
