GDWG submission to Stephen Shaw review
On 24th July 2018 the follow-up report by Stephen Shaw, ‘Assessment of government progress in implementing the report on the welfare in detention of vulnerable persons’ was published. During 2017 GDWG carried out an extensive piece of research with detainees to ascertain what progress had been made since his 2016 report ‘Review into the welfare in detention of vulnerable persons’. The evidence for our research was obtained from G4S medical records and detainees’ Home Office files. The research findings formed GDWG’s submissions to this review.
