Coronavirus Solidarity Fund

During the Coronavirus crisis, everyone is at risk, but people with insecure immigration status are particularly in need of help right now. Many don’t qualify for government help, and are missing out on local voluntary initiatives.

During the crisis, we are running regular Lockdown Sessions, live-streamed events online, raising funds for community projects supporting at-risk migrants. This includes getting food, hygiene products, medicine and legal advice services to people in lockdown. We also need money for data packages, phone credit and tech devices for campaign spokesperson groups – people with experience of detention. This helps to keep them connected, training, organising and leading the campaign to end detention

With the first three weekend sessions, we have raised over £7,000!

About These Walls Must Fall

People are being taken from our communities and locked up in prison-like detention centres, without time limit, with no idea of when they might be released. Why? They just don't have the correct immigration papers. These Walls Must Fall is building a networked campaign to end immigration detention once and for all.
