Aziz Foundation

Helping us to attract young Muslims to join Scouts

Scouts is open to all. But research shows that we don’t always reflect the diversity of our local communities, and don’t always reach the young people who would benefit from joining.

As part of our commitment to reach the communities who are underrepresented within Scouts, the Aziz Foundation generously support our work, so more young people from Muslim communities have the opportunity to join us.

They also support a member of our staff, who works on developing a strategy to support the growth of young people joining Scouts within the Muslim community.

As part of this strategy, we’re working on the development of resources to support volunteers to lead new provisions, as well as activities which will help to promote social mixing.

About Aziz Foundation

Established in 2015, the Aziz Foundation is a family charitable foundation whose key principle is to make strategic interventions to kickstart and energise change and development.

The focus of their work is to develop new leaders from within British Muslim communities, and enable them to participate positively in wider society.
