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.

When Michelle approached us for support, she was seven months pregnant and living with her cousin in a one-bedroom flat after fleeing domestic violence. Michelle’s partner assaulted her when she was three months pregnant and she managed to get a restraining order, but he has breached the conditions and she was concerned for her unborn child’s safety.

Michelle was due to move into a private rented property in another city, which would be covered by her maternity pay and where she would be safe from her ex-partner, but she had no extra funds to buy items for her baby. She was also trying to obtain a Debt Relief Order because her ex-partner had spent a lot of money on her credit cards, leaving her with unpaid bills.

The Trust provided a grant of £200 towards a cot and baby items, as well as a Mother & Baby Kit, which contained some of the other essential items for her new baby.
