New Roots

Project Background


With re-offending rates at an all-time high, As-Suffa Outreach established the New Roots project to make prisoner transitions from jail to community seamless. To achieve this, we offer ex- offenders support at a critical juncture in their rehabilitation in a bid to break the cycle of re-offending.

The project

This project aims to provide support and direction for those individuals who require a tailored service before and after leaving prison.

We aim to make the transition back into the community for prison leavers smooth by addressing concerns and removing any obstacles.

We offer to visit the prisoners during prison term and at their exit, upon release.


We have worked with over 50 ex-offenders from the Birmingham area in 2018 alone. We regularly visit HMP Stoke Heath every fortnight and have met several ex-offenders at the gate, offering them much-needed support and guidance.

 We are now also pleased to announce that we have started working with HMP Werrington (Youth Offenders).

Get involved!

As a service mainly run by volunteers, we welcome all individuals who can contribute to our objectives in any way and can assist with the Prison Project. To express your interest in volunteering, please visit Volunteers – As-Suffa.

Get involved


Lost for words. For those who are really passionate about studying the deen of Allah. There is no place like As-Suffa. Very hard to explain but one has to experience being around those ulama from as-suffa to understand where i am coming from. May Allah increase their knowledge and give them jannat firdaus for the great work of deen that they are doing.
