Rebecca Evans, Assembly Member for Gower, has met with the Muslim Council of Wales (MCW) to hear about a range of initiatives and community projects being undertaken by the MCW across South Wales.
The Muslim Council of Wales is an independent body representing mosques, Muslim associations and institutions across Wales.
Rebecca Evans said: "It was very useful and productive meeting where we explored the ways in which the MCW is promoting community engagement and active citizenship. It was particularly good to hear about the work that the MCW is doing to help young Muslims advance their leadership, management and team working skills.
"We also talked about the need to ensure that people affected by mental ill health and domestic violence have access to the help that they need, and about the value and importance of ensuring we have the right support services in the community.
"It was pleasing to hear how the Wales Interfaith Forum, established by the Welsh Government and chaired by the First Minister, is fostering strong and productive relationships amongst the different faith groups in Wales."
Saleem Kidwai Secretary General, Muslim Council of Wales, Said: “I was pleased by the interest and understanding that Mrs Evans showed in our various projects and the challenges the Muslim community is facing"
