Legal support

At Bail for Immigration Detainees (BID) a dedicated OutCry! legal team works with families to prepare applications for temporary admission and bail.

BID works with barristers who offer their services free of charge to represent the family cases we prepare at bail hearings in front of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal. Our work with families includes representing people separated by immigration detention and pregnant women. BID intends to challenge the government’s detention policy by taking strategic cases to the higher courts.

BID’s OutCry! team are working with legal firms to develop judicial reviews challenging the lawfulness of detaining children and their families for immigration purposes.
