Muslim Hands has produced ‘Muslim Women in Prison’

A study into the needs and experiences of Muslim women at HMP & YOI New Hall and Askham Grange prisons during custody and post release. It is based on a caseload of 17 Muslim women, detailing their experiences during and post prison release. The report contains case studies, testimonies, observations and demonstrations of the practical support provided. The report aims to enhance understanding of the issues and barriers facing Muslim women in custody so that providers will be more informed to take into consideration the needs of this specific group. There are gaps in the way facilities, services and rehabilitation programmes are structured which discourage female Muslim inmates from accessing support available. Download the report here
