WHO WE ARE
The MWSF is an independent volunteer-led charity set up 2001 with the overarching aim to increase the involvement of Muslim women and girls in sport without compromising their religious or cultural values through catering to and raising awareness of their specific needs.
We exist to proactively promote diversity and inclusion within sport and are the only organisation in the UK with this particular focus on Muslim women and girls. With vast knowledge and experience of sport, health, media, business and the Muslim communities, the MWSF has developed a distinct reputation both nationally and internationally. We set the standard and drive the agenda for our industry through strategic and practical consultancy, campaigns and insight.
Although our focus is on Muslim women and girls, our mission is to create change by using sport as a means for social development and progression for all communities in order to achieve our vision of building a strong, healthy and active-for-life society. We accomplish this through providing enriching and empowering experiences within the sports industry and the wider community that enable sustainable development from social inclusion, gender parity and health equality perspectives.
