The An-Nisa Society was established in May 1985 by a group of young British Muslim women who wanted to respond to the needs of Muslim women and their families, whilst identifying themselves as Muslims. Hitherto services had been provided on the basis of race and ethnicity alone. A multi-ethnic British Muslim identity was not recognised, so the fact that Muslims needed faith to be taken into account when delivering services had been overlooked. The Society found a community that was socially excluded and rife with disadvantage and deprivation caused by a misunderstanding and neglect of Muslims and their needs.
