End Child Detention Now

A citizens’ campaign to end the scandal of child detention by the UK immigration authorities.

End Child Detention Now’s Keep Your Promise campaign launched in January 2011, calling upon Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to keep the coalition government’s promise to end child detention immediately and not to build a new detention facility at Pease Pottage near Crawley or to upgrade facilities in Tinsley House into secure family detention accommodation.

To remind Clegg and Cameron of their pledge, End Child Detention Now’s friends at the Shpresa Programme have produced an A6 postcard which you can download and print at this link.

If you are a student please get involved in the KYP campaign through STAR (Student Action for Refugees) and help to organise a postcard campaign via your STAR group or contact STAR HQ direct (see ‘other campaigns’ below).
