Support women in Derwentside

Support women who are currently detained in Derwentside detention centre with vital hardship support.

"I arrived in the UK after fleeing gender-based violence, and I was detained in a prison-like removal centre. Why? Purely because I exist and am in need of safety."

Derwentside has capacity for up to 84 women at any one time, and we know that women detained in Derwentside are struggling to meet their needs.

They need urgent support for:

Phone credit

So women can stay in touch with their loved ones and legal representatives to ensure they are receiving the support they need.

Hardship support

So women can buy necessities from the ‘shop’, such as toiletries and hygiene products.
