What will I be doing?

  • This is a fantastic opportunity to gain hands on practical experience in fundraising and communications at a leading charity challenging the injustice of immigration detention in the UK.
  • You will work closely with the Fundraising and Communications Coordinator to support our events programme, create materials for clients and create content for our website, newsletter and social media platforms.
  • No previous experience of fundraising or the charity sector is required but you will need to have strong communication skills, a passion for human rights,a positive approach and a willingness to learn and take on feedback.

What impact will this have?

  • You will be working with a leading charity providing migrants and asylum seekers with free legal advice to get out of detention or to revoke a deportation order.
  • The UK is the only country in Europe that does not have a statutory limit on the length of immigration detention. Yet many people in the UK know very little about detention. By volunteering at BID, you will be working to raise awareness about the injustices faced by migrants in the UK.
  • For the last 20 years, BID has borne witness to the daily injustices faced by immigration detainees. We have consistently held the Home Office to account while advocating to end detention and supported over 45,000 people to fight for their freedom. By volunteering at BID you will be joining a movement of people fighting for the end of detention.
