Story

Join our team and become a Hackney Half Hero

We are an independent charity that exists to end immigration detention in the UK. We have been helping people exercise their right to liberty alongside campaigning for the end of Immigration detention for over 20 years.

Since 1999, we have supported over 46,000 people to get out of immigration detention and have borne witness to and evidenced many gross abuses of state power.

If, like BID, you want to see a world free of immigration detention, where people are not deprived of their liberty or deported from their homes, join our team and fundraise for us at 2024 Hackney Half !

Read more about our work here.

BID is a small and independent charity that relies on the generosity of supporters and volunteers. Every penny you raise will go towards keeping our advice line open, training our volunteers and fighting for our campaigns to end immigration detention!

If youre keen to get started on fundraising have a look at our fundraising guide here.

Warren, one of our Hackney Half Heroes from last year, shared her reasons for supporting BID:

In the wake of new hostile environment policies from the Conservative government, I think it’s more important than ever to be supporting organisations that are working towards aiding people who are often in dire circumstances to get the advice and representation they not only need but deserve!
