"CIC is an educational charity providing advice and information for victims of cults, their families and friends, researchers and the media. CIC was founded in 1987 and became a registered Charity (No.1012914) in 1992. It was the first educational organisation focusing critical concern on the harmful methods of the cults to be granted charitable status in the United Kingdom.
CIC is concerned about the use of deceptive and manipulative methods used by cults to recruit and indoctrinate unsuspecting members of society. CIC believes that these cult methods present a threat to the well-being of the individual and the family. Consequently CIC sees the need for gathering and disseminating accurate information on cultism and aims to meet that need.
CIC's Activities: Public Education CIC gives preventative educational talks to Schools, Colleges, Universities, Churches, Clubs and Corporations.
Media Interviews CIC helps the media with interviews to further disseminate information on cultism.
Family Assistance CIC offers information and support for families who have lost a loved one to a cult.
Ex-Cult Members Support CIC offers information and support to ex-cult members who are often experiencing symptoms of cult withdrawal.
Research Assistance CIC assists students and other researchers with bibliographies and other information for projects, academic papers and books.
Information Service CIC provides information to the general public when questions are asked about a particular group's possible connection with a cult."
