On March 9th Barnardo's announced that it had signed a contract to help run the Pease Pottage 'pre-departure accommodation' unit near Gatwick. Barnardo's staff will be working alongside the UKBA to rebrand the detention and deportation of children who have been rejected asylum.

No Borders South Wales is calling for widespread resistance to this plan, with the aim of forcing Barnardo's to pull out of the Pease Pottage contract.
