Immigration in the UK

From border control and detention centres to housing and welfare support, we are committed to helping the UK Government protect borders while sensitively manage those going through the immigration process.

Border control and immigration services

We are a world-leading provider of border control and immigration services in the UK. Having implemented part of the UK’s national security infrastructure in 2007 - the first service of its scale and kind in the world - we have managed the operation 24/7 on behalf of Border Force ever since. 

The breadth and scope of our delivery and the innovation we bring is significant. Our services include the management of border controls, the management of detention centres, the provision of housing and welfare support services for asylum applicants, the issuing of identity documents and repatriation services. We also deliver tracking, border detection, and surveillance services.   Our aim is to focus on the individual needs of everyone in our care while able to support the UK Government in developing new solutions to the ever-evolving threat to our national security.

We operate in two immigration areas:

Secure Immigration Detention

We operate secure detention services on behalf of government immigration departments. Our facilities and services ensure the safe and caring detention of people awaiting information on their asylum status.

Community Accommodation and Support

We provide vital community accommodation and support services for people while their asylum claim is being processed. We manage an extensive property portfolio with the aim of providing the best possible care.
