Any other activities, which will benefit the community or assist the charity in achieving its objectives
Founded in 2008, WICC founders felt a missing opportunity to formally teach children about Islam and how to read the Quran. Since then WICC have set up a Sunday school and provided children with a safe space to learn Islamic studies, Quranic reading and memorisation. With the success of the school, WICC wanted to provide fun and engaging actives for children, by organising a weekly youth club, offering trips throughout the year, as well organising yearly festive events. WICC has had it's fair share of ups and downs but continues strive for improvement and growth.

As well as our seasonal community events, WICC have held talks and events from a variety of speakers, artists and professional people, such as Mutah Beale (Napoleon of Tupac's Outlawz), Ajmal Masroor and many others, specialising in matters that directly affect the community or encourage us to come together.
Islamic outreach is an important aspect of WICC’s work, building good relations with non-Muslims in the community, running workshops in schools to teach the bases of Islam, encouraging understanding and integration.
WICC are proud to have organised trips for the communities youths, from such things as Thorpe Park, Go Ape, Go Karting, KidZania and many more.
