Sir Al Aynsley-Green, Children’s Commissioner for England - 11 Million

[PDF] The Arrest and Detention of Children Subject to Immigration Control

The Children’s Commissioner for England, Sir Al Aynsley-Green, visited Yarl’s Wood Immigration removal Centre (IRC) [operated by Serco] on 16 May 2008...This report presents the findings of the Children’s Commissioner’s visit...Our audit of health records at Yarl’s Wood found outcomes to be below the standard we would expect to be provided by the National Health Service (NHS)...There is an urgent need to address the provision of mental health services and support for children and their parents. The preventative healthcare arrangements prior to removal...were found to be so inadequate as to endanger children’s health.
