Our Immigration Centres

Focused on the needs of the individual and recognising different cultures and religions, we deliver the best care we can during an incredibly stressful and challenging period in their life, providing a welcoming, comfortable and as interesting a time as possible while they are with us.

We work with a wide range of specialist partners, introducing innovations and using technology in creative ways to improve the experience of service-users providing more autonomy and better access to available facilities.

At our centres one of your important roles will be to ensure that residents can access and utilise a comprehensive range of welfare services, including:

  • Healthcare
  • Faith and cultural provision
  • Legal services
  • Educational and recreational activities, such as gyms and libraries
  • Work opportunities aimed at supporting residents throughout their period of detention and preparing them for release and resettlement

We deliver our service based on a community model allowing residents as much freedom of movement and choice as possible.
