No safe refuge - documenting the experiences of LGBT asylum seekers in detention.

No safe refuge


No Safe Refuge shines a light on one of the darkest corners of our asylum system: the UK’s immigration detention estate and how appallingly LGBTQI+ people are treated inside it. We found that LGBTQI+ people were harassed and abused by others in detention, and discriminated against by staff who failed to keep them safe from harm. Healthcare for LGBTQI+ people – and especially trans people – was inadequate, and the dangerous environment they were trapped in had serious and long-lasting effects on their mental health.
