Yarls Wood Befrienders held their annual conference on Saturday 26 January 2019 at the Forest Centre in Bedford.  It was a chance for volunteers who befriend vulnerable women at Yarls Wood Immigration Removal Centre to get together, reflect on their work and learn more about immigration detention.  Tim Davies and Helen MacIntyre from Wilsons’ immigration and public law departments respectively presented the afternoon sessions.  Tim spoke about immigration bail and the law and procedure around removals from the UK.  Helen gave an overview of unlawful immigration detention law and compensation claims. Wilsons are very pleased to support this excellent organisation and the fantastic work that they do for immigration detainees.

Helen said following the event, “It was thoroughly enjoyable to be part of the conference. Yarls Wood Befrienders provide a really valuable service to women in Yarls Wood who are often isolated, traumatised and scared. I feel fortunate to be able to support their work.” If you require advice or representation in connection with immigration detention or any other public law matter please contact Penny Visram on 0208 885 7924 or p.visram@wilsonllp.co.uk

If you have a family law case you need assistance with, please contact Mavis on 020 8885 7986 to arrange for an appointment with a solicitor in the family team.
