Discover the impact IDC has and how we do it.

Countless people – including children, pregnant women, LGBTIQ persons, people with disabilities and older people – are currently imprisoned in immigration detention.

The problem is huge and widespread, but it’s not unsolvable.

Through policy change, IDC has helped prevent human rights abuses and secured a brighter future for refugees, migrants and their families all over the world.

"My future is looking bright. I have good hopes...I am listened to.”
