Introducing the people behind the National Zakat Foundation.
If you, or someone you know, is in need of help, please read the Am I Eligible to Apply? Section below to see if you should apply for support.
How does NZF’s Economic Empowerment Programme work?
NZF offers its beneficiaries a comprehensive package of financial support, combined with a network of partnerships to meet their needs. In this way, NZF’s aim is that beneficiaries will feel confident to support themselves financially within 6 months of our support.
If you have already received a grant from NZF, you cannot apply for the same support within 6 months of your last payment. If you have a different need from your previous application, you can make a new application.
Am I Eligible?
To be eligible, you must:
- Be Muslim
- Live in the UK
- Demonstrate that your circumstances mean that you cannot, or will soon not be able to, finance your basic needs (food, clothing and accommodation)
- Declare all income and expenses, assets and debts
How much support can I expect to receive?
Our average grant is £750 per person. In some circumstances, beneficiaries may receive a maximum of £2500 with a 12-month period from their application. NZF also works with service providers, other charities and authorities to empower recipients in the best way possible.
