The Future of Muslim Chaplaincy in Britain

22 September 11

22nd September 2011, Cardiff University, Main Building, Park Place, CARDIFF, CF10 3AT

This one-day conference offers a unique opportunity to hear and discuss the main findings arising from a 28-month research project on the work of Muslims chaplains in Britain, generously funded by the AHRC/ESRC ‘Religion and Society’ Research Programme.  Chaplains, policy-makers, academic researchers, and public-sector managers are warmly invited to attend.  Interactive workshops will consider the key issues in contemporary chaplaincy, and will map future research agendas.  Contributors to the event include:

  • Maulana Ismail Isakji (HMP Long Lartin)
  • Rehanah Sadiq (NHS University Hospital, Birmingham)
  • Dr Ataullah Siddiqui (Markfield Institute of Higher Education)

Attendance is free of charge, and all refreshments (halal) will be provided.  Parking at the venue is only available in exceptional circumstances (NCP car parks are available in the City Centre).  A taxi from Cardiff Central station is approximately £5.00, or a 20-minute walk.
