In early 2007 a small number of Muslim families living in the Camberley and Farnborough areas came together to discuss issues within our community. Recognising that many of our needs were not being met it was decided to form a community organisation that could lend a voice and work to realise these needs. Out of this was formed the Surrey Heath Muslim Association.
We work with other organisations including the local and county councils, the police, health organisations and other bodies to ensure that our needs are catered for and also to provide a conduit for them to get their own messages into the Muslim community. It is only be working together that we can ensure that Muslim community in our area can play its full and proper part in the wider community.
As an association we are a non-profit making charity and rely very much on donations and the work of our volunteers to deliver the services that we need. We are registered with the Charity Commission. Our charity number is 1126441. Our governing document describes our aims and how we run the charity.
We provide a number of services and activities covering education, fitness and burial services. We also regularly hold social gatherings including an annual summer event which are regularly attended by over 300 people each year which is open to everyone from the wider community.
