Casework Support for Muslim Families with a Loved One in Prison

Locked Out provides support to men and women from Muslim communities who are affected by the incarceration of a loved one. This support includes casework, counselling and practical support for family members, as well as the development of strategies and resources to overcome barriers to access, information, services and support.

All Locked Out initiatives aim to strengthen family and community ties in preparation for release. Programs take into consideration the diversity and uniqueness of each family’s experiences, working with religious, cultural, social, economic and political sensitivity to ensure that all casework is inclusive, engaging and meaningful.

The Community Restorative Centre and Locked Out are working closely to secure funds to increase the capacity of the Locked Out family project.
