Inspire is a counter-extremism and human rights organisation which seeks to address inequalities facing British Muslim women.  We empower women to challenge hatred, extremism and gender discrimination.  By empowering women, Inspire aims to create positive social change resulting in a more democratic, peaceful and fairer Britain.  Women are key to the development and prosperity of any society; Inspire believes that Muslim women are no different and are capable of being at the forefront of strengthening communities as well as tackling problems both within Britain and internationally.

We provide a number of different services including consultancy, training and development, publications, delivery of campaigns and the creation of local women’s networks. We manage projects on a local, national and international level focusing on empowering Muslim women, strengthening community cohesion, preventing all forms of extremism, enhancing gender equality and promoting human rights.
