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 from 26/05/2014.
