Muslim Charities Forum (MCF) supports Muslim-led charities working internationally and within the UK, through support, networking and the sharing of best practice.

The London Community Foundation (LCF) has a long history of supporting BAME and disadvantaged communities across London through successful grant-making and charitable support.

In this recent COVID19 era, this new partnership between MCF and LCF will help address the gap of Muslim-led organisations accessing mainstream funding.

The MCF research report ‘The Neighbours Next Door’ shows that only 16% of Muslim organisations have accessed grant funding during the Covid-19 pandemic, despite a huge scale aid response with BAME communities being disproportionately affected by the virus. MCF and LCF are working together to provide support and skills to Muslim charities and open new avenues for discussion and understanding with grant-makers.
