Case Study 2

A Local Authority wanted to consult Young Muslims around various issues affecting them


After an initial analysis of the required outcomes, research into national statistics and trends, gathering experiences of practitioners and the views of Young Muslims themselves from various sources such as the Muslim Youth Helpline, we came up with a proposal which inlcuded the following topics:


  • Discrimination
  • Criminality
  • Relationships
  • Violent Extremism
  • Identity, Belonging and Citizenship
  • Drugs and Alcohol


The consultation was successful, which culminated in a report with recommendations. These were followed up with a residential, which allowed a group of young people to plan activities responding to local needs for a year. 


Subsequently, four other cities have followed the same format.
