Community Safety

KIKIT offers a range of interventions for vulnerable individuals within our communities to reduce crime, radicalisation and anti-social behaviour by empowering young people to build brighter futures and safer communities. We provide intensive support tailored to the need of individuals to recognise the impact of negative actions on themselves, their families and the community around them.


KIKIT supports and protects the most vulnerable in society, and helps them on the road to recovery.

Pathwayz

KIKIT Pathways to Recovery provide support via satellite provisions within mosques and community centres across Birmingham, engaging and supporting young vulnerable individuals. Within these workshops, KIKIT provide intensive advice & information to address needs such as:

  • Substance Misuse.
  • Radicalisation.
  • The links between substance misuse, mental health & risks of being radicalised.
  • The Muslim Recovery Network: A 12 step recovery programme.

As part of the project KIKIT have developed and currently deliver a Community Safeguarding Panel, this is a community referral mechanism to support individuals who may be vulnerable to radicalisation and extremism.


Child Sexual Exploitation

KIKIT have been commissioned by Public Health Birmingham to raise awareness in BME communities regarding child sexual exploitation and provide intensive mentoring support for perpetrators aged between 15 – 24 years. KIKIT now provide information, advice and referral process for vulnerable young people who are vulnerable.

We currently provide a range of workshops, one to one and group awareness sessions tailored for young men aged 15 – 24 years, exploring the detrimental effects of grooming. KIKIT work with local people and community organisations, providing assertive outreach, workshops and person-centred support, to reduce the risks of child sexual exploitation.


Training opportunities

KIKIT offer a range of specialists safeguarding training to over 30 mosques and hubs within Birmingham and many more nationally. The training provided has established referral pathways for Imams and volunteers, as a result of this we have received over 2000 referrals requesting information and support for individuals and families.


Family Support

KIKIT understand that these issues can have a knock on effect on the family and carers of an individual. Combined with intense mentoring for the individual we also provide support and workshops for families & carers to create awareness and provide them with the relevant tools to further support the individual in becoming free from any vulnerability and preventing this from reoccurring.
