First Registered: 19/06/2019 • Last updated on: 15/06/2022

To raise awareness in parliament about immigration detention in the UK and its impacts; to connect parliamentarians with relevant research, organisations and experts, including people with lived experience of detention; and to advocate for evidence-based policy reforms and the welfare of detainees.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
