The community will benefit by having a culturally sensitive provision and trauma-informed on the issues of domestic violence, gender-based violence and Child abuse, as well as Childhood events leading to trauma in young people and adults with Black and Ethnic Minorities, both in the community. The provision will allow tools to express their trauma and help such groups engage with statutory services through mediation and mentoring.

The company will help in preventing /minimizing the national rates of child abuse, domestic violence, and gender-based violence against women and girls in East Anglia, Bedfordshire, Herefordshire and London.

This will tackle the social issues of black and ethnic people not accessing mental health support; this will help minimize the stigma of mental ill health, enhancing their ability to engage successfully with mental health services. 

The community, including (Child Support agency service users) will benefit in understanding the long-term damage of, Child Abuse domestic violence and harmful cultural practices, child exploitation, supporting Parents or Guardians of Black and Asian communities who have young people involved in gang membership and have been rehoused in rural locations in  East Anglia, empowering them through advice, on line awareness initiatives on safeguarding vulnerable young people as well by a pool of material, resources and appropriate referrals.

The company will help survivors of abuse both within the community as well as those involved in the criminal justice system (serving sentences from crime but have been victims of any of the violations or violence mentioned above) as highlighted, equipping them with skills and tools to managing their mental health in workplaces, education spaces, and enhance family relationships. In addition, they are providing referrals to other agencies as appropriate.

The community will benefit young people from Black and Ethnic minorities in that people with low to medium mental ill-health concerns can receive support and recovery from the CIC, acting to refer people with very high complex mental ill-health needs to other appropriate sources of support. Mediation and a supportive strategic work plan will be offered when there has been a lack of support and a breakdown in communication with their faith leaders, relatives, and significant relationships.
