Where we work

Hibiscus works directly with marginalised migrant women at every point within the criminal justice and immigration system, supporting women at every opportunity on their difficult journey through the system.

We work with women:

  • in the community (mainly in London)​
  • in custody and courts​
  • in prison​
  • in immigration removal centers and pre-departure accommodation​
  • who have been returned to another country​

We also work with vulnerable migrant families in detention and those who have been returned to another country.
