Accompaniment in Action event: Detained and Dehumanised

In June, JRS UK released its latest report Detained and Dehumanised: The Impact of Immigration Detention. Join Sophie Cartwright, JRS UK’s Policy Officer, and William Neal, JRS UK’s Detention Outreach Officer, as they discuss the report and share some of the experiences of the refugee friends who have been detained. They will shed some light on the incredibly damaging effects of indefinite detention which so often go unreported.

Join us from 18:30 – 19:15 on Wednesday 9th September on Zoom for a discussion with Sophie and Will.

Will and Sophie will also talk about how JRS accompany those who are detained, outline ways in which you can support those who are detained and how you can speak out to help bring about much needed change to this damaging policy. They will also be happy to answer any questions you may have at the end of the session.

Whether you have visited those in detention or have no knowledge of what detention is and how it works, this evening is a great opportunity to hear about what our refugee friends had to say about their experiences of being detained here in the UK.

This will be the first of a new, monthly series known as Accompaniment in Action which will see us take a closer look at the various ways that JRS accompanies our refugee friends and they us. We will be speaking to members of staff, volunteers and hear from our refugee friends. Join us for this series to find out more about JRS as we begin to celebrate our 40th year.


When: 18.30 – 19.15 on Wednesday 9th September 2020

Where: Online on video conference software ‘Zoom’
