Prevent - Merseyside Inter Faith forum (M.I.F.F)
MERSEYSIDE Police's 'Prevent Team', hosted its 1st Merseyside Inter Faith forum (M.I.F.F) meeting. The aim of the group is to bring together leaders of different faiths to create a support network along with Merseyside Police. The 1st event, held at Merseyside Police's headquarters, brought together 11 leaders from the Muslim community, who have similar roles, to share their experience and positive work that goes on in the community. The group heard from Dr Usama Munir, from the Imam Trust in St Helens, who gave a presentation on Meet Your Muslim Neighbour (MYMN) and the volunteering work they're doing in the community and giving ideas that can be adopted in other communities. 'Prevent' Sergeant Darren Taylor said:- "This was the 1st event of its kind and there was a great atmosphere and a genuine excitement to be part of something new. In the near future we want to see not only leaders from the same faith get together, but people from all different faiths to create a support network, where we can all come together and equally support each other. We've found that regardless of beliefs we all come across the same issues in the community." M.I.F.F is always looking for new members; the group aims to meet every 12 weeks and keeps in contact with members with a regular newsletter.
