The Mosques & Imams National Advisory Board is pleased to be liaising with the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services as part of the new national drive to help create a safer sector for our young people.

NCVYS and MINAB are calling on all children and youth organisations to make 28 February the one day every year where organisations:

  • Stop what they are doing,
  • Look at their safeguarding practices and
  • Listen to young people, empowering them to take an active role in managing their own safety.

As part of this initiative the MINAB in collaboration with Faith Associates, an organisation with a very impressive record in the field of Mosque & Madrassa Management to produce a document , which is aimed at helping in Safeguarding of the young and the vulnerable in our Madrassas.

Commenting upon this work, Maulana Sarfraz Madni, the Chair of MINAB said,

“This document is simple and clear. It makes us aware of our duty of care towards the young people and children. It reminds us of the need to be vigilant in ensuring a safe environment for our children. It gives essential and key guidance in preventing abuse, intentional or otherwise of children who are left in our trust. MINAB is very pleased to work in partnership with Faith Associates and the National Council for Youth Voluntary Services on this important initiative and calls upon its membership to implement the guidance given in this document.”
