Our Casework service

Casework is the direct engagement of CAGE with those impacted by the War on Terror.

We work closely with victims and survivors of abuse and mistreatment not only in the UK, but across the globe, supporting them, providing them with relevant information and enabling them to access due process in their case.

Casework seeks to help our clients by identifying their needs and effectively fulfilling them through our professional support and guidance.

The importance of Casework

1) For the victims and survivors:
Victims and survivors of the War on Terror suffer from the stigma attached to the allegations they face.
As a result, they find individuals and organisations, Muslims or non-Muslims unwilling to assist.
CAGE is often the only organisation where people can seek professional advice in a non-judgmental and religiously/culturally sensitive environment.

2) For CAGE:
Casework represents the backbone of CAGE’s work and serves as a basis for all of our projects.
It is used to inform our research, to formulate first hand evidence-based positions and to provide direction and exclusive content for our media work.
