Outreach West London (formerly Outreach Ealing),formed in January 2018, is a Muslim Community Organisation which aims to bring together communities in West London to share their common values and promote greater understanding between all members of the community.
It aims to work with Muslim and non Muslim organisations to ensure that anti-Muslim prejudice is regarded just as socially unacceptable as anti-Semitism and other forms of racism and xenophobia. It seeks to tackle Islamophobia via awareness, social interaction, advocacy, media engagement and improved community relations.
Outreach West London also supports the needs of the Muslim community and aims to equip Muslims with the skills, resources and materials necessary for them to play a more active role in society. It believes that all citizens have a responsibility to contribute to the positive and sustained development of a Britain in which all members of society are valued and respected whatever their religious, racial or ethnic background, gender disability or sexual orientation.
