We look forward to seeing you there... MKA Committee & Trustees
Volunteers appealed to local business, family friends and the community to donate gifts that that were then distributed among the sick children, making this unique initiative the first of its kind in Europe!
Both children and staff were overwhelmed with the generosity of the community and extremely grateful; “this is a really brilliant idea” said Vanessa Roberts, child specialist at the LRI.
The MKA organised the gift giving to coincide with Eid and to commemorate their 35th year anniversary.
Overall, the event was a great success and we hope to organise future events in the coming year.
The event focused around the root causes of violent radicalisation in the UK, the individuals and groups vulnerable to radicalisation and where this radicalisation tends to take place.
Reverend Jackson’s keynote speech looked into the lessons learnt from the US experience of tackling radicalisation.
Keith Vaz MP, who is chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, said: “The roots of violent radicalisation remains a subject of great national interest".Other speakers addressed topics such as how the experiences of Northern Ireland informed the Government’s Prevent strategy, a closer look at how big a threat there is from the far right, including challenges facing police today and how to counter radicalisation in prisons.
Invited speakers included:
James Brokenshire MP, Minister for Crime and Security at the Home Office,
Professor Peter Neuman, from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence,
Ian Paisley Jnr MP, of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party and
Dr Dipu Moni MP, Foreign Minister for Bangladesh.
Dr Richard Hall, of De Montfort University.
