Developing Diversity

Urban Nexus was commissionedto run focus groups in various regions around the country inorder to compile a directory of the 100 leading Mosques in UK, that provides the best access to women, catering for their needs and allowing them to play their rightful role in the decision making processes. Each Mosque wasawarded a rating out of five stars based on criteria developed through women's focus groups with the ultimum aim to incentivise Mosques to improve their engagement with and inclusion of women in all aspects of their work. Urban Nexus delivered focus groups in Harrow, North London, Haringey, Bradford, Manchester, Birmingham, Coventry and Derby. Thedirectories were then launchedthrough high profile events.

The objective of these launches wasto encourage statutory, voluntary and community organisations to make links with these best practice Mosques and also encourage less involved Mosques to play a greater role in building relations with communities in their area, through the development of partnerships and contacts with groups and individuals that are ‘hard to reach’.The eventual aim was to incentivise Mosques to improve their engagement with and inclusion of women in all aspects of their work and become the core for the local area. The directory aimed tobring about specific awareness to Mosques in the large UK cities which between them provide a home to more than 75% of the Muslim community in Britain.
