Independent Monitoring Boards Secretariat

An independent monitoring board

Independent Monitoring Boards (IMB) work inside every prison and immigration removal centre. They are a group of ordinary members of the public, and they monitor the day-to-day life in their local prison or removal centre and ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained.

Use the Secretariat for FOI requests relating to IMBs generally. If your query relates to a specific IMB, please make the request to them directly.
