We act for those detained under the Mental Health Act and foreign nationals held in detention centres who are receiving inadequate treatment and care, who are unlawfully detained, whose human rights are being breached or who are being unlawfully discriminated against on the grounds of disability.
Examples of recent successes include:
- Obtaining compensation for an asylum seeker, subsequently granted permission to remain in the UK, who remained unlawfully detained following the completion of his prison sentence
- Acting for minors whose age is disputed by the Home Office and who were detained unlawfully, securing release from detention and obtaining damages
- Acting for foreign national prisoners held in long terms immigration detention following completion of their sentences pending deportation and securing their release.
