JRS Spring Newsletter

The JRS Spring Newsletter landed on supporters’ doorsteps at the beginnning of last week. Focusing on the work of our detention outreach team, we hear about the recent volunteer training, seperating the fact and fiction of immigration detention and much, much more. You can catch up on all our latest news today.


The JRS Spring Newsletter turns the spotlight onto our work with refugees in immigration detention. Beatrice Grasso, who oversees this important work, shares her thoughts on the experience of detention and on the value of detention visiting. We then hear about a recent training day for detention visitors, and explore some myths around detention.

When we visit detention, we journey alongside refugees, and in this newsletter, we invite you to do the same by joining us in prayer. You’ll find more details of how you can accompany those in detention in prayer in the newsletter.

In other news, you may have seen that we recently published our first research report “Out in the Cold: Homelessness among destitute refugees in London”. The research highlighted the troubling realities of living in destitution. Sophie Cartwright, our Policy Officer, says more about this work in her article in the newsletter.
