Foundation announces new support for the Naz Legacy Foundation

In line with its priority to build strong and cohesive communities, the Foundation is delighted to announce a new two-year partnership with the Naz Legacy Foundation.

The Naz Legacy Foundation seeks to continue the legacy of the late Naz Bokhari OBE, the first ever Muslim Head Teacher of a state comprehensive school, by supporting young people throughout education whilst supporting positive integration into mainstream British Society. The Naz Legacy Foundation bridges the gap between young people and national institutions, ensuring they are given the opportunities and exposure that many from deprived communities are so often isolated from. Naz Bokhari believed that faith was a vessel to bring people together; accordingly, the Naz Legacy Foundation seeks to facilitate the positive engagement and integration between all communities and faiths.

The Foundation’s support will, in particular, support the Naz Legacy Foundation’s Diversity Day programme which encourages young people from deprived and minority communities to visit a cultural institution for the first time and learn about the rich heritage of diverse role models in Britain, like Princess Saphire Singh, who played a vital role in the suffragette movement. This programme, which is delivered in partnership with long-standing COSARAF Foundation partners The Prince’s Trust’s Mosaic mentoring initiative, engages school children from some of the most deprived areas of London, some 85% of which would not normally have access to such experiences without the support of the Naz Legacy Foundation.

“I have seen at first hand the important work of the Naz Legacy Foundation and I am delighted that we are able to support its work as it enters the exciting new chapter in its history as a registered charity and with its first paid member of staff.”
Farouq Sheikh, Trustee
