Survey: Convert care in the UK
Dear Friend Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barrakatuh
This letter comes to your Mosque, Islamic Organisation or Convert Care facility kindly inviting you to take part in a mapping exercise led by the CONVERT MUSLIM FOUNDATION and supported by the MUSLIM COUNCIL of BRITAIN as well as by volunteer Convert Care providers located across the UK.
The aim of the exercise, which is the first of its kind in the UK, is to improve access to information for Convert Care providers in their efforts to assist those who express an interest in Islam or who have, by Allah’s guidance and mercy, recently converted to Islam. To this end, our objective is to establish a comprehensive database of Convert Care provision in Mosques and Islamic Organisations across the whole of the UK. This will enable us to direct requests for information and support to a Convert Care service initiative that is located within the immediate geographical area of the enquiry. It will also ensure that service providers are adequately equipped and that specific needs will be addressed in a culturally sensitive manner. The exercise will also allow us to flag up Mosques and Islamic Organisations that will serve as beacons to others based on good practice and excellence of service.
We respectfully invite you to complete this CMF SURVEY, as informatively and thoroughly as possible while remaining mindful of the fact that what is requested is specifically related to Converts to Islam who seek guidance and support from your establishment. If your Mosque or Organisation is keen to provide this support but have not had any training in its organisation or delivery please indicate this. We are happy to offer assistance in the form of mentorship and advocacy training so that you may establish Convert Care as a significant and important aspect of your community service provision.
Thank you for kindly responding to this initiative and for assisting us in bringing this vitally important information to those individuals and families who will benefit from the information provided now and in the future.
Kindest regards – Wassalam
