Case Study - Dungavel

Dungavel is located in Scotland and provides 249 beds for men and women. Those in our care typically come from over 30 different countries with a wide range of cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds.

The Centre provides a particularly relaxed regime, where Detainees have complete freedom to move around the Centre to participate in the wide range of activities we provide for them. Many face uncertain futures, and our staff are particularly skilled in providing re-assurance, support and helping them to plan ahead for their departure from the UK.

"Dungavel is the best Immigration Removal Centre we have inspected" (Chief Inspector of Prisons)

"The relaxed and secure ethos of the institution is wholly attributable to the skill and watchfulness of the staff" (Independent Monitoring Board)
