Many of our social media volunteers will be taking a break from their regular tweeting duty over summer, to prepare for this year’s Unlocking Detention, which starts in November.

Unlocking Detention shines a spotlight on the hidden world of immigration detention.  This ‘virtual tour’ of the immigration detention estate uses Twitter, Facebook and a website to ‘unlock’ the gates of immigration detention centres.

If you want to find out what we did last year, do dive into your guide to #Unlocked18.

While we are preparing for our next ‘virtual’ tour, our Twitter account will be much quieter: only two volunteers are going to be on duty. If you want us to share information about immigration detention, any upcoming event, please tweet at us at @DetentionForum

And stay tuned to find out how you can participate in this year’s Unlocking Detention!
