Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust

The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust is a registered charity, supported by Manchester City Council. The Trust works out of the Resource Centre, undertaking outreach and education work with local communities and is responsible for producing our publications for schools and young readers. The work of the Trust includes:

  • working with community groups to collect life histories, photographs and documents so that the community histories are not lost to the future
  • supporting schools and teachers in developing an anti-racist curriculum
  • creating Black history resources for use in school and community settings
  • publishing multicultural stories and biographies of Black British heroes written and illustrated by school children
  • organising events, exhibitions and activities to share knowledge of the contributions of BME communities to British history.

Trust and Centre staff work closely together on many projects. The outcomes of most community and school based projects are available for visitors at the Resource Centre.
