Our Projects

 
 

elays Advocacy

Elays Advocacy seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their voice heard on issues that are important to them,

  • Defend and safeguard their rights

  • Have their views and wishes, considered when decisions are being made about their lives.

Elays Advocacy has helped many people from diverse backgrounds with a variety of issues from housing, benefits, education, finance, health, immigration, social services and crime.

We also run parenting workshops that specifically deal with issues such as youth crime, education, social services and positive parenting over 6 weeks, with many families participating in these programmes.

In addition we do parent and youth workshops throughout the year addressing everyday issues that people face. These are run by a professional family life coach who explores  the parent child relationship and dynamics. These project are normally advertised on our website and social platforms ahead of events.

For more information on all of these projects, please contact us.

Elays madrasah

Elays Madrasah is a pioneering project which has been setup to meet the growing demand for professional well established after school supplementary sessions for children.

We pride ourselves for laying out ethical code of conduct and belief for our students through our Islamic teaching methods. Injunctions such as; do not lie, do not steal, treat others as you would like to be treated and respect the environment are just a few of our ethical teachings. These ethical codes of conduct go side by side with the importance of prayers and fasting in Muslim lives. This enabled Elays Network to steer away many young people from all sorts of crimes and enabled them to acquire the tools they need to stay safe and keep away from radical or extreme interpretations of Islam.

Elays Madrasah has been the backbone for many of Elays’ Projects and it has changed the lives of hundreds of boys, girls and families in Wandsworth and beyond.

Through Islamic and Quranic teaching we were able to inspire young people to celebrate their culture identities and share it with mainstream British communities through various ways, such as exhibitions, drama, plays, poetry and discussions.
