The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) is the UK’s largest and most diverse national Muslim umbrella organisation with over 500 members including mosques, schools, charitable associations and professional networks.
Our mission is empowering Muslim communities to achieve a just, cohesive and successful British society. Founded in 1997, we lead community projects and initiatives around the country. The MCB publishes reports, guidelines and resources to inform the mainstream discourse on British Muslims and to empower our member organisations across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We are:
- Independent – core funding comes from membership fees
- Cross-sectarian – members belong to Islam’s diverse religious traditions
- Democratic – leadership is elected for 2-year terms and is accountable to members
