Negligence by Immigration Detention Centres


Negligence claims can involve a wide range of circumstances and it is essential to seek expert legal advice if considering making a complaint about negligence at an immigration detention centre.


There are many ways in which a detainee can suffer neglect at the hands of immigration detention centres and their officers.


Examples of neglect by a Detention Custody Officer (DCO) or by an immigration detention centre can include;


  • Not allowing the detainee their daily exercise
  • Not providing clean bedding
  • Not providing clean clothing
  • Not providing food and water
  • Not providing the correct sanitary facilities
  • Preventing the detainee from accessing literature
  • Preventing the detainee from making phone calls


Negligence can result in injury and can affect the mental state of the individual and therefore can be extremely damaging and potentially ruin lives.


Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors can advise those who have suffered injury as a result of negligence on how to make a formal complaint to the relevant prison.


Duncan Lewis may be able to secure legal aid, or to offer a no win no fee arrangement for advising on police complaints and claims – with competitively priced rates for privately funding a claim or After the Event (ATE) insurance, if either legal aid is unavailable or where a no win no fee basis is not possible.
