Become a visitor

We rely on the work of volunteers from all walks of life and backgrounds to deliver much needed emotional and practical support, advice and signposting to people detained at Morton Hall.

Our volunteers are often the only human beings that people detained at Morton Hall will come into contact with who don’t wear a uniform – aren’t immigration officials, Home Office representatives or police officers.

As such, our volunteers are often the first people who detained people come into contact with, in the UK, who don’t automatically disbelieve them, who listen with empathy and without judgement.

If you are interested in joining our team of dedicated volunteers in Nottingham and Lincoln – and are able to commit to a minimum of six months, visiting at least once every 10-20 days – we’d love to hear from you. We are especially interested in receiving applications from people with lived experience of the hostile environment and/or immigration detention, as well as those who are bi-lingual/ multi-lingual.

Please take a look at the Role Description before completing the application form. Once received, we will invite you to attend an informal interview/induction, before arranging initial training and a shadow visit with an experienced volunteer visitor.
