Al-Mizan Charitable Trust is a Muslim grant-funder which supports disadvantaged people and deprived communities across the UK, regardless of their faith or cultural background.

Emily is a single parent who had just been released from custody after serving a prison sentence for possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply. She had suffered from anxiety and mental health issues since the birth of her first child and coupled with abuse from her husband and other members of her family, she struggled with daily tasks and was unable to manage her finances properly. Emily turned to criminal activities to deal with her debts.

Whilst in prison, Emily attended therapy for her anxiety and workshops on money management and other work-related skills. She was released from prison early and was working with an organisation that supports single parents that have been released from prison through providing accommodation.

Emily is now living with her youngest daughter and is trying to rebuild their relationship. Her support worker felt that one way they could spend quality time and improve their physical health was to start cycling together.

 

The Trust provided a grant of £180 towards two bicycles and helmets.
