SOAS Detainee Support Group works on a non-hierarchical basis. All initiatives come from the passion of individual members and their ability to self-organise with the rest of the group using consensus decision-making.  Group decisions are taken together in our fortnightly meetings.

Working groups and project groups



Since 2010 we have been able to employ a paid co-ordinator.  Since 2014 this role has been shared between two people, each working 12 hours per week, and they alternate in the two functions below:

  • Casework co-ordinator: initial point-of-contact for people in detention, and ensures that they are visited and supported.
  • Admin co-ordinator: initial point-of-contact for all other enquiries, and supports the non-visiting parts of SDS.

The coordinators’ full role description is here.
