In 2015, we are hosting more than 200 visitors monthly to the centre resulting in many warm interactions and new partnerships currently in development.
Reviewing our monthly visitor reports, almost half of all visitors attend to learn about Islam at the centre and valued the opportunity to have a face-to-face discussion with our friendly staff.
Austerity cuts nationally and the growing financial challenges drove our second major driver for interactions based on our community campaigns related to food and fuel poverty.
A number of public bodies and organisations have contacted us for support and guidance including health providers, schools, Social services and Bedfordshire Police.
We have also been a constant point of reference for academic research and media coverage of Islam.
