The Foundation has made grants to the following organisations:
Artistic Directors of the Future is the UK’s first organisation dedicated to creating change at leadership level in mainstream theatres. It works with a wide range of culturally diverse directors at varying levels of experience to inspire, prepare, support and empower the next generation of artistic leaders giving them the leverage they need to progress to the next step.
British Future works for a confident, inclusive Britain that feels fair and welcoming to all through communications work, strategic advice, public engagement and grassroots activities that bring communities together. It is extending and developing its integration network, which brings together civil society, councils and central government.
The Centre for Islam and Medicine facilitates research and knowledge sharing around questions at the intersection of religion and science. The Foundation is supporting a series of workshops to help faith and medical practitioners understand the relationship between Islam and legal, ethical, practical perspectives on medicine and health.
Kayd Somali Arts & Culture (Kayd) promotes Somali arts, heritage and culture in the UK. It organises the annual Somali Week Festival (SWF) in London during Black History Month.
The MWSF is an independent volunteer-led charity with the overarching aim to increase the involvement of Muslim women and girls in sport without compromising their religious or cultural values. It is re-launching its British Teams to change the narrative around Muslim women, provide strong ambassadors, and unearth talent to enter mainstream pathways into sport.
Save the Children’s “Communities Project” works with families in Hackney to provide after-school services to children. The Foundation is part funding its expansion into other UK cities.
Volunteer It Yourself combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14-24 to help fix youth clubs and community centres in need of essential repairs. It pairs up young people with local professional tradespeople to learn vocational trade and building skills that open up employment, further training and wider volunteering opportunities.
The grant was awarded to the Muslim Scout Fellowship (MSF), which is the United Kingdom’s National Active Support Unit for Muslim adults who are active in Scouting, and strives to provide practical help and support for their Scouting needs. It is part of The Scouts Association in the UK and endeavours to deliver on the same values of supporting young people in their physical, mental, spiritual and social development, that they may play constructive roles in their local, national and international communities.
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) is a national representative Muslim umbrella body with over 500 affiliated national, regional and local organisations, mosques, charities, and schools. The MCB is pledged to work for the common good of society as a whole; encouraging individual Muslims and Muslim-based organisations to play a full and participatory role in public life.
