A newsletter written by detainees, and put together with the help of GDWG.

“Detainees constantly praise the group and are amazed at the support provided by the office and visitors. We are often the first British people to offer support and detainees comment that they felt no one in the UK cared about them.”
“The office assisted me to get back in touch with my family in Zimbabwe, and also assisted me with clothing. My visitor made me feel more myself and that it wasn’t the end of the world. She gave me hope and encouragement.”
