Detention Centre Visits

Would you like to visit a detention centre? Crossing Borders is looking for volunteers for our monthly detention centre visits. We run visits to both Victorian centres, Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre and Maribyrnong Immigration Transit Centre. These visits give volunteers the opportunity to gain insight regarding the current conditions within a centre, and to undergo recreational activities with the residents. Activities include volleyball, soccer and even nail painting sessions. You don’t have to be any good (because I’m definitely not!) We also aim to provide some much needed community interaction with the residents. We are one of the rare few volunteer groups that visit these centres, which is what makes our work so important!
