Jonathan Cox commented on Ending the Detention of Children for Immigration Purposes 2013-01-11 01:58:21 +0000KAT MIAO YU – Chinese Migrants Network:
“I took my young son Benjamin with me to visit CEDARS. What struck me, as a leader from an organisation of Chinese migrants, is that the Pre-departure Accommodation isn’t a detention centre. It doesn’t have high walls and security guards in every room. It provides decent privacy for families in most of the rooms. My impressions were that it was family-friendly and put children’s needs first. The children’s play areas really stood out for me – and for Benjamin of course! It has indoor and outdoor play areas that are suitable for all aged children. It’s a positive step forward in ending child detention.”
