Donate to support young Muslims

This Ramadan support our fundraising campaign to help give our youth somewhere to turn to.

Why do young Muslims need help?

The truth is, young Muslims have it harder than ever. They are constantly being challenged on their beliefs, values, and identities, and the list goes on…

The problem is many of our youth have no one to turn to. They are too shy to ask their parents, too embarrassed to ask the imams and fear being mocked by their friends.

When they do try to seek help, they are met with long waitlists from mainstream services or often work with practitioners who do not understand their cultural or religious needs. As a result, they may feel misunderstood and discouraged from seeking further support.

That’s where we come in!

Muslim Youth Helpline operates as a free, national listening service to provide support to young Muslims. Our values mean we are:

  • Non-judgmental
  • Non-directional
  • Empowering

We want to give young people the tools and encouragement to improve how they feel or their situation, no matter what it may be.

How are we tackling this problem?

  • We provide a free helpline available nationally.
  • This helpline is a safe space for young people to share their problems without fear of being judged.
  • We point them in the right direction.
  • We specialise in working with Muslim youth.
  • And we do all this for free!

How does your donation help young Muslims?

Every day we receive calls, webchats, WhatsApps and emails from youth who have no one else to turn to.

They may be depressed, anxious and suffering suicidal thoughts. Our team is there every day to listen, support, and encourage. Donating to our helpline will help us reach and support as many young Muslims in need as possible.

Your donation funds our completely free helpline.

Your money pays for the technology, the training, and the phone bill. This helps us keep the life-saving helpline open 365 days a year and free to use!

Case Study

Imran was sexually assaulted when he was 6 years old.

He didn’t tell anyone at the time, mostly because he did not understand what was happening to him.

Imran is now 26 and getting ready to marry a girl he loves.

But as the marriage draws near, Imran is experiencing feeling those traumas creep in. He fears the abuse could plague his marriage.

Imran reached out to MYH because he didn’t know who else to turn to for help.

Donate now to support young Muslims like Imran.
