Welcome to AMIMB – Association of Members of Independent Monitoring Boards
Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) members are unpaid volunteers who serve in Britain’s 124 prisons and Immigration Removal Centres. Their role is to monitor day-to-day life in their local prison or removal centre and ensure that proper standards of care and decency are maintained.
Our objects as an Association are to educate, inform, advise and support IMB members in the law, the treatment of offenders and all other matters relating to their role so that they may perform their duties in the most competent and efficient manner.
AMIMB also issues publications, arranges training events, promotes conferences and maintains awareness of developments in the law, prison rules and associated subjects and communicates these to its membership.
