Management & volunteers

One of the great distinctions of Masjid-e-Ali is the willingness of a core team of people to step forward for the management and day to day running of the centre in an entirely voluntary capacity.  The management structure comprises three main components; those being the Property Holding Trustees, the Executive Management Commitee (EC) and the sub-committees that report to the EC.

Management of the centre is in accordance with the constitution adopted on 18th of May 1980 (amended 2nd April 2006).  Masjid-e-Ali is registered with the Charity Commission, charity registration number 280440.  

The current EC took over management responsibility following the EC Elections which took place on the 20th of September 2014.
