The National NHS Muslim Network welcomes all of our Muslim colleagues, allies and friends to our Islamophobia Awareness Event.     

Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) is a campaign founded in 2012 by a group of Muslim organisations. It aims to showcase the positive contributions of Muslims as well as raise awareness of Islamophobia in society.

The theme this year is #MuslimStories. The goal of this year’s campaign is to facilitate connections among individuals from diverse backgrounds, including both Muslims and non-Muslims, using the transformative power of storytelling. Everyone has a story to tell. It can be based on their own experiences or those of someone they admire. So, let’s take part by sharing our stories and sparking meaningful and engaging conversations!

The event will be hosted by our award-winning Co-Chairs and supported by:  

  • Chris Hopson, Chief Strategy Officer, Executive Sponsor of the NHS Muslim Network, NHS England
  • Andrew Bland, Chief Executive, NHS South East London – Integrated Care Board
  • Sherifat Muhammad Kamal, Specialist Pharmacist HIV & Sexual Health for the NHS, Community Pharmacies and the PCN, NHS
  • Ahmed Abdi, Head of Continuous Improvement, Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust
  • Hafza Abdirahman, Business Manager Urgent & Emergency Medicine, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Shannen Beadle, Discharge Facilitator, Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust 

We look forward to welcoming you all.
