In June 2010, the MWSF commenced a groundbreaking research project exploring ways in which to engage the female Muslim community in sport and physical activity by providing a greater understanding of their needs and requirements.
With such a diverse range of Muslim women living in the UK and each having different needs and pressures shaping their lives it is important to understand the reasons that prevent them from taking up an active lifestyle and more importantly how to practically engage them.
Stage one of the project consisted of colleting data via a survey which was distributed online and as a hardcopy throughout the UK. This initial stage was completed in January 2011 with responses collected from approximately 800 Muslim women of all ages living in the UK.
Stage two will commence later this year and will take the form of focus groups with the aim of gaining further in-depth knowledge based on the findings of stage one.
On completion of the project the research findings will be released to governing bodies and other related organisations along with best practice guidance and recommendations.
