Details

This is a report of an independent review by Stephen Shaw, commissioned on behalf of the Home Secretary.

The report examines the government’s response to his previous report (Review into the Welfare in Detention of Vulnerable Persons, Cm 9186, published in January 2016), and what impact this has had in practice. The report looks in detail at healthcare, caseworking, safer detention, oversight and staff culture, and alternatives to detention.

The report also includes a list of recommendations to the Home Office to further improve the welfare of vulnerable persons in immigration removal centres.
