Al-Mizan Charitable Trust

Al-Mizan Charitable Trust (charity no. 1135752) supports people living in poverty across the UK, regardless of their faith or cultural background.

Although Britain is seen as a wealthy country, one in five people live below the official poverty line and struggle with the rising costs of living.

Founded 2010

  • Mission statement

    Through the General Welfare Fund, the Trust provides small grants, which help with the costs of education and training, employment and enterprise, household items, medical and mobility, and subsistence.

    The Trust operates a flexible Grants Policy, which is designed to meet a person’s individual needs. Beneficiaries include children and young people, single parents, elderly people, victims of domestic violence or abuse, asylum seekers and refugees, prisoners and ex-offenders, disabled people, and the working poor.

    The Trust also runs four fundraising appeals throughout the year. During Ramadan, Food Parcels are distributed to low-income families. Before the school year starts, Back to School Backpacks are given to children living in poverty, which contain school uniform vouchers and essential stationery supplies.

    When the cold winter months begin, homeless people receive Winter Warmer Packs that contain warm clothing, toiletries, and first aid items. To celebrate Mother’s Day, Mother & Baby Kits are handed out to new mothers who cannot afford essential baby items.

    The fundraising appeals are run in partnership with grassroots organisations, so that the packs reach the people who need them the most.
