Initiative by Muslim Women's Network UK
Purpose of MHM

To celebrate and raise awareness about the significant contributions and cultural richness of Muslims in Britain, with the goal of challenging negative stereotypes, fostering improved understanding, and cultivating greater empathy and inclusion towards Muslim communities within the broader society.

Your ideas can be big or small. They could be something you would consider doing personally or would like to see others do. We can add these to our toolkit to help inspire others.

Our Supporters

We express gratitude to our initial supporters for playing a crucial role in helping to launch Muslim Heritage Month. Resources for staff time and website development, has been instrumental in getting the initiative off the ground.


These are third party Muslim focussed events that have occurred or scheduled to take place during and after MHM. They can be a useful source of ideas when thinking about your own activities. Please contact us to post your events.
If you want your event removed, then please inform us.
