Muslim Youth Helpline

The shadow Justice Secretary Sadiq Khan has rightly called for an inquiry on rising prison populations from the Muslim community in London prisons. Figures show that 27% of London prisoners are Muslims; double the rate of the overall Muslim population in the city.
Young Muslims in the UK are more likely to experience exclusion because of where they live as well as limited access to economic opportunities. Muslims aged 16-24 have a higher chance of being unemployed in comparison to the general population.
The Chief Inspector of Prisons reveals that a shocking 21% of prisons in youth jails are Muslim, an increase of 8% in only three years.
