Threshold

Threshold is a housing, advice and support charity with operations across the Greater Manchester area.

They have been working to support vulnerable people to achieve greater independence and wellbeing for decades.

We teamed up with Threshold - a leading provider of supported housing and other services to vulnerable people - to establish Manchester’s first shelter for Muslim women. This 5 bed project opened in June 2014 and has widened access to our services for Zakat recipients in the North of England.

Al Rayan Bank (Formerly Islamic Bank of Britain)

Our finance partner for 2017 is Al Rayan Bank. Al Rayan Bank has pioneered Sharia compliant retail banking in the UK and now offers the largest range of Sharia compliant retail financial products in the UK. These include Sharia compliant mortgage alternatives, the Home Purchase Plan (HPP) and Buy to Let Purchase Plan (BTLPP), current accounts and savings accounts.

The Bank is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority, regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority and is a member of Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

As a Sharia compliant bank, the source of Al Rayan Bank’s funding, profits and business investments must be ethical. They cannot be from businesses that are considered unlawful under Sharia, i.e. companies that deal in interest, alcohol, gambling, pornography, speculation, tobacco, arms and other commodities contrary to Islamic values.

Whilst Al Rayan Bank offers products and services that are designed in accordance with Sharia principles, it is an inclusive, ethical organisation and welcomes customers of all faiths looking for a bank with a transparent, prudent and community-focused approach.
