History
Indian Muslim Welfare Society (IMWS) is a time-honoured Voluntary Community Organisation with Charitable Status, which was established in 1957.
It is a member of the Interfaith Council (GB) It is an umbrella organisation which has close connections to the network of local Mosques and represents the community on all aspects of socio-economic and political issues.
However, all services are targeted to the wider community and IMWS has had a long track record in working with a wide range of organisations, public, private and voluntary. It has been engaged in delivering a range of projects targeting all age ranges and across the spectrum of community need.
The local Council recognises IMWS is considered to be a key agency for the local community. IMWS supports and delivers education and training in business support services in collaboration with Business-link West Yorkshire (BLWY), the Learning and Skills Council West Yorkshire (LSCWY), Local Education Authority (LEA) and local Further Education (FE) colleges. It works with the National Health trust (NHT), Primary Care Trust (PCT) and PPP Health foundation to address issues that affect the local Asian community.
The organisation has recently delivered a JobcentrePlus Minority Ethnic Outreach (MEO 3/4 year pilot project) to assist the unemployed to secure employment, whilst at the same time has strong linkages with BLWY and other similar services on issues around Equal Opportunities and Diversity.
