The Government treats detainee welfare as a matter of the utmost seriousness, and expects the highest standards from those who manage the detention estate on its behalf. Conditions at Campsfield House immigration removal centre, and all detention facilities, are kept under regular review.
Independent scrutiny is a vital part of assurance that our removal centres are secure and humane. We will continue to implement actions in response to recommendations made by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons and by the centre’s Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) in their published reports. The IMB’s report for 2016, published in April 2017, recognised that Campsfield House is generally well run and that it is a safe and secure environment for detainees who are treated with respect, care and consideration.
