Set up in 1995, the Islamic Unity Society (IUS) now has over 500 members across the UK. Our membership and audience includes young people aged between 18 and 30. We currently operate mostly in London and Manchester, however we also have projects running across the UK all run solely by volunteers. We have successfully been a registered charity since 1997 (Charity No. 1066910).
As young people ourselves, we are aware of the pressures encountered as Muslims in the west. The IUS hopes to create the security and community that many of us lack. We organise events and offer a wide range of services all year round. In the process, we hope to bring together youth of all ethnic backgrounds to meet and learn from one another. This will also facilitate the future development of our communities.
Aims and Objectives
The IUS aims* to promote social and cultural cohesion within a multi-cultural Britain based on Islamic principles through empowering young people. Specifically through:
- Advancing education concerning Islam through the promotion of good practice within the community and encouraging tolerance.
- Improving the quality of life and enhancing opportunities for our members through providing facilities in the interests of social welfare and recreation.
