Uniting communities through sport

Salaam Peace in East London uses sports, media and education initiatives as a way of bringing together people from diverse backgrounds and tackling issues that could lead to communities becoming polarised.

The organisation was founded by Sabir Bham following the 7/7 attacks to bring the community together, promoting positive images of Islam as well as providing positive activities for those that may be at risk of anti-social behaviour or have been in the criminal justice system. Their flagship events include the Eid Cup and Inter-Faiths Cup, one-day events to encourage young people of all religions to participate and build links in the community.

"For me sport is a great way to bring people together, develop friendships and build respect." - Sabir Bham
