The Worcester Muslim Welfare Association (WMWA) is a local charity based in Worcester, serving the local Muslim community since 1979. The members of the Muslim community worked hard to establish this association particularly for the provision of a place for worship. At present around 450 people can pray in the Mosque at Tallow Hill.
From small humble beginnings, WMWA is the largest Muslim organisation in Worcester and surrounding areas. We provide a range of holistic, culturally sensitive services for the community of Worcester, drawing on Islamic values and heritage, with a view to improving quality of life and enhancing community cohesion.
- Focus on the needs of the diverse Muslim community whilst ensuring services are open to all.
- Meet the needs of the local community by promoting health, education and employment opportunities.
- Provide Muslims and non-Muslims with the opportunity to learn and understand Islam, through dialogue, discussion and social interaction.
- Contribute to the social, cultural, spiritual and economic enhancement of the whole community, through policy and strategy development and service.
WMWA works actively to promote tolerance and understanding. Along with all the local mosques, we are a member of Muslim council of Britain (MCB) this binds together Muslims from different backgrounds and strands of Islam. We enjoy excellent interfaith relations - and the strength of these relationships has stood us all in good stead during the recent testing years. We regularly organise interfaith dialogue on religious tolerance with representation from all the major faiths where we also remember and pay respect to our beloved prophet Muhammad (saw).
