Coronavirus update: please note that because of the current situation, some items may not be sent out straight away.  At the beginning of April we will send out digital items, and for experiences we will put winning bidders in touch with the people running those experiences.  However, for most physical items we may not be able to send those until our office re-opens.  We will keep in touch with all winning bidders about when this will be.

This year Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group is marking 25 years of visiting people in detention with an online auction to raise funds to continue our work, and also to raise awareness of this important issue.  

Whether a person has recently arrived in the UK or has been here for many years, the experience of detention is traumatic. People are held for indefinite periods which has a terrible impact on the mental health of those detained. Our volunteers undertake to visit one person regularly, helping to reduce their isolation, showing solidarity and acting as a contact with the outside world. 


One of the greatest problems faced by people held indefinitely in immigration detention, is lack of access to good quality legal advice. GDWG try as far as possible to make appropriate referrals on behalf of detainees. By liaising with solicitors, or clarifying the legal process, we try to ensure that everyone we meet receives a fair hearing. We also help people make complaints where appropriate, and collate information, along with other visitors’ groups, with a view to improving the well-being of people in detention. 


We give talks in schools in the local area to raise awareness of our work and detention issues. Refugee Tales is an outreach project calling for an end to indefinite detention and we run ‘Walk with Us’ for people who have experienced detention to join walks on release. Refugee Tales anthologies with the tales of those indefinitely detained are available from Comma Press.


We assist with small practical needs, such as second-hand clothing, international phone-cards, and small amounts of money to people experiencing destitution. We support families who wish to visit their loved ones being held at Gatwick and invite people who have experienced detention to join our walking community for regular walks in the countryside on release. 

For more information on our work please visit 
https://www.gdwg.org.uk/ 

The auction will end at 17:00 on the 31st of March.


Some wonderful prizes have been donated, and GDWG are very grateful to everyone who has kindly offered a lot.


Please note this is a UK based auction - if you are unable to collect the item, delivery charges may apply.
