Workshops for Organisations

Our goal is to continue to build and develop relationships with the public sector in Cambridgeshire and beyond to raise awareness of the role of Islam and Muslims in wider society as well as promoting better understanding of Islam. The Centre aims to engage with different faith groups, mosques, churches, health service, social workers, Muslim and non-Muslim communities, police, prison, lawyers and Muslim organisations to offer knowledge and expertise and organise seminars and talks on issues facing Muslims in contemporary Britain.
