What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Open Circle is a New Roots initiative, designed to cater for an oft-neglected and overlooked group in our communities.

Our aim is to provide a safe space where young Muslims aged 11-16 can learn, develop and be empowered. Through regular engagement in an Islamically anchored and socially comfortable environment, they are allowed the freedom to express and explore aspects of teenage life, their faith and much more.

Snapshot of the past year...
We have welcomed more than fifty 11-16 year olds, who have been able to benefit from the unique sessions we run. In our faith & practice sessions they have covered the essentials of purification and prayer, belief in God, the signs of the day of judgement and much more. During conversation sessions, they have discussed many interesting and pertinent topics including: nationalism and citizenship, racism and bullying, the idea of community, role models, drugs & alcohol. In addition to this, we have been able to offer and subsidise some fantastic recreational activities during our motions sessions and our monthly youth hubs, including archery, trampolining, and go-karting. And to top it all off we have recently facilitated a successful and enlightening all-inclusive residential youth camp in the valleys of South Yorkshire, with 74 young Muslims, coming from Birmingham as well as many other parts of the country.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we offer Open Circle FREE OF CHARGE. It is purely funded by fundraising from volunteers and donations. However, it is extremely difficult to remain sustainable without your help, thus we urge you to support us financially and take your share in this service of the community.

We need to fulfil this communal obligation towards our Muslim youth. So play your part and we can make a difference, TOGETHER.

We want to be fully transparent about how we will utilise the funds raised. Below is an estimated breakdown for the cost of running one full year of the Open Circle programme.

- Venue hire = £2,000

- Indemnity = £650

- Youth hubs/Events = £2,000

- Guest workshops = £500

- Volunteer training sessions = £500

- Equipment / Stationery / Printing = £500

- DBS / Volunteer training = £200

- Administration = £2,000

- Website hosting = £150

- Filming/Marketing/PR costs = £1000

- Merchandise = £500

- End of year residential = £2,000

Total approx. cost (based on 50 students)=£12,000

So we urge you to please donate whatever amount you can, every pound and penny will make a difference! We need your all your help and support to continue our work. May Allah reward you abundantly and grant you all good :)

WE are the present, OUR YOUTH are the future.

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

Whoever relieves the hardship of a believer in this world, Allah will relieve his hardship on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever helps ease someone in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever covers the faults of a Muslim, Allah will cover his faults in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah helps the servant as long as he helps his brother…
