Supporting Muslim women leaving prison

Khidmat Centres, Bradford, have produced guidance on supporting Muslim women on their release from prison:

As passionate race, gender and faith equality workers we have had to overcome scarcity of resources, lack of community led templates and disconnectivity of providers and the community with the challenges faced by Muslim women prisoners. All this had to be mitigated against the real concerns of women around their protection, dignity and at the same time supporting them to break the silence. We had to ask ourselves very real questions about what it takes to reclaim back our communities bearing in mind the inequalities and disadvantages playing out for BAME communities, especially BAME women coming through the CJS. For us, the way forward is that specialist community rehabilitation needs to be rooted in the very communities which women are returning to.
