Bradford Council for Mosques (CfM) has earmarked £100,000 Mosque Support Fund in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This initial fund is available for mosques within the Bradford District that are in hardship to help with running and maintenance costs during the national lockdown and will be capped at £1,000 per application
The scheme has been set up following the suspension of congregational prayers and teachings across all mosques and Muslim supplementary faith schools in Bradford during the COVID-19 outbreak. With many mosques financially reliant on income from the teaching of children and donations from the community, the scheme will help to cover utility and other running costs during the lockdown period.
“However, there is still more to be done. I’m calling on charities and organisations across our region to join us as part of this scheme. Our aim is to double the amount of funding available through partners and other contributions, providing much-needed relief to our community during this unprecedented time.”
The Bradford CfM was set up in 1981 as a forum to develop consensus on matters of significance across the District’s Muslim community.
