What is Cult Information Centre (CIC)?

CIC is a 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 charitable organisation, established in the United Kingdom, focusing critical concern on the harmful methods of the cults.

CICs Concerns

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.
