Himaya Haven CIC

Himaya Haven CIC is a leading Birmingham based organisation that concentrates on working with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities (BAME) and specialise in supporting families of loved ones in custody and prison.

Our mission is to provide a range of culturally-sensitive services to meet individuals’ and family members’ needs whilst they progress through the criminal justice system by offering holistic support, advice, guidance, information, coping therapies and access to mainstream services. We believe that families should be able to access appropriate and timely support at every stage of the Criminal Justice System – from point of arrest to point of release.

Our aim is to speak up on behalf of the “Silent victims on the outside” by offering a variety of services to support families of men and women who have a link with someone in custody or prison. It is to champion their needs and problems, assisting these groups to cope with the anxieties of arrest, sentencing, imprisonment and release; alongside tackling taboo subjects which carry with them stigma, shame and dishonour.
