New Roots - As-Suffa

New Roots

Project Background


With re-offending rates at an all-time high, this project was established to make the prisoner transition back into the community as smooth as possible. By assisting them at a time where they are often lonely and without correct support, this ultimately helps break the cycle of re-offending.

The project

The aim of the project is to provide assistance to anyone wanting support and direction before and after leaving prison. The type of assistance is tailored to meet individual cases.

We aim to make the transition back into the community as smooth as possible by addressing concerns and planning a way forward.

We visit the prisoners inside the prison and meet them at the door upon release.


We have worked with over 50 ex-offenders in 2018, all from the Birmingham area, visiting HMP Stoke Heath every fortnight. We met several ex-offenders at the gate and have also 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 volunteer, please visit Volunteers – As-Suffa.

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.
