Who we are

Muslim aid has undergone profound change over the last 18 months, with a new legal structure, constitution, board of trustees and executive team. Given these changes, the organisation is looking to invest in a strategic planning process that will effectively position the organisation for the future. We wish to develop a strategic framework that will re-establish us as a contemporarily relevant faith-based organisation, to deliver a world-class service and to become an organisation that is known for its excellence by our peers.

3. To engage with a broad and balanced range of internal and external stakeholders
