My story

[p]Dear friends, [/p][p]Thank you for visiting team BID's fundraising page for the London Legal Walk.[/p][p]Our team is: [b]Anthony, Elisa, Pankhuri, Paulo, Wayne, Rudy and BID's director Annie who will be walking with us remotely on the Isle of Skye.[/b][/p][p]On the 18th October our team will be walking 10km for freedom and justice and together we are hoping to raise £1,000 to help BID continue to provide free legal advice to people detained under immigration powers in the UK. [/p][p]Please give generously to this vitally important cause! You can find out more information about immigration detention and BID's work below and on our website [url=http://www.biduk.org.]www.biduk.org.[/url][/p][p][b]Thank you,[/b][/p][p]Team BID.[/p][p][b][u]About immigration detention:[/u][/b][/p][p]Since 1999 BID have supported over 46,000 people to get out of immigration detention and have borne witness to and evidenced many gross abuses of state power. [/p][p]In the UK the Home Office have the power to lock people up indefinitely, without trial for the purpose of immigration control. However as evidenced by the Windrush Scandal, they have a history of terrible decision making with horrific consequences. [/p][p]Last year they paid out £9.3 million of compensation to people they wrongfully detained and in March 2019 parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee condemned the "careless and cavalier" approach of the Home Office and raised serious concerns about a catalogue of failings leading to rising self-harm and suicide in detention centres:[/p][p][i]"The Home Office has utterly failed in its responsibility to oversee the safe and humane detention of individuals in the UK, that too often it does not follow its own policy and guidance, and that a series of safeguarding and case-working failures have led to people being wrongfully detained, held in immigration when they are vulnerable and unnecessarily detained for too long."
