Al-Mizan Charitable Trust is a Muslim grant-funder which supports disadvantaged people and deprived communities across the UK, regardless of their faith or cultural background.

quit-smoking-pot1Jake grew up in the London Borough of Hackney, the youngest of 6 children. Whilst his siblings are married, his elderly parents struggled to bring him up as he was truanting regularly from school and became involved in drugs and gang-related violence. Having failed his GCSE exams last year, a youth worker encouraged him to take on an apprenticeship at a local company learning administrative and business skills. Since then he has been motivated to repeat his GCSEs in English and Maths so that he can go to college and continue his studies. The Trust awarded him with an interest-free loan of £202, on condition of 25 hours of voluntary service for a local charity.
