If you are interested in becoming a Befriender, please bear in mind that we are looking for volunteers local to the Bedford area. If you live further away but are keen to visit, try looking at our links page and see if there’s a Removal Centre near you.
If you are contacting us regarding someone you know who is detained in Yarl’s Wood, please feel free to phone us at any time. We understand that detainees may be in need of urgent support, and you can contact us out of office hours on our mobile numbers. Mobile can often be the easiest way to contact us in any case, as we visit Yarl’s Wood most afternoons and the office answerphone will not be checked until the morning.
If you want to get involved, or to contact us for any other reason, email us here or telephone 01234 272090. If we are not in the office, please phone Heather on 07789 520640 or Tim on 07403 068925.
Our office is at 27b Tavistock Street, Bedford, MK40 2RB.
