The Salaam Centre
Who we are
The Salaam Centre is the first of its kind in the UK, an inclusive community centre with dedicated prayer facilities and community facilities open to everyone such as a restaurant, sports halls, gender specific gyms, lecture theatre, children's play area and much more.
Bridging the gap
Modern life makes is increasingly difficult for families to spend quality time together. The Salaam Centre offers facilities for everyone regardless of age and will be an 'oasis of belonging' for all generations.
Keeping the Islamic heritage alive
Our Islamic heritage is central to our lives and will underpin everything we do at the Salaam Centre. Furthermore we believe our values can transcend boundaries and bring us closer to our friends and neighbours in the UK. Creating an environment of openness will allow meaningful interaction with wider society and correct the sometimes false, negative image of Islam.
Holistic and Serene
Amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the Salaam Centre will offer a haven of reflection and tranquility immersed in an Islamic environment. The facilities at The Salaam Centre are designed to nurture new expressions of religion and a better understanding of Islam through innovative methods and free expression.
Make a difference
It has been a long road from the project’s first inception to gaining planning permission from the Local Authority in January 2011. £10.2mhas been raised for this project and the project’s overall construction cost is £22.5m. This figure may seem ambitious but the Salaam Centre offers something unique that has the potential to transform the community and radically re-orientate the relationship between Muslims and the wider society in the West, ensuring a sustainable future for all.
