Re-opening: Regional Feedback Webinars
Following consultation with over 350 Muslim institutions and scholars across the UK during May, MCB issued initial discussion guidelines on re-opening safely. Click here to download the discussion guidelines (PDF).
In early June, Muslim community members are invited to join a regional feedback webinar on how mosques, madrasas and community centres in your region can be supported to re-open inline with COVID-19 safe guidelines from as early as July, and to share your thoughts / comments / views.
Panellists from a range of regional associations/ Council of Mosques will share their updates. Register by region here:
