Aims of organisationCommunity InfoSource (CIS) is a charity organisation established in 2006 to work with and for marginalised people to help overcome the barriers they face to integration and employment and supporting them to put their own ideas into action. Human rights issues are of particular interest to us. We work locally with refugees and asylum seekers, as well as internationally. In August 2014 we established a new project `Combatting Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)) by working with men. This project will last for three years and aims to work with men to shift their own attitudes & practices and impact others in their communities so as to promote change amongst people from communities that traditionally practice FGM.
