About Us

Oldham Muslim Centre is a project of Islamic Forum Trust (IFT).

Serving the Community

The Oldham Muslim Centre is in the heart of Oldham, a diverse borough with a rich history, and home to one of the UK’s largest Muslim community. It is our belief that our primary concern should be to serve the needs of the local community and to work towards the common good. The organisation has five work areas

  • Religious and Spiritual Development
  • Training and Education
  • Social Welfare
  • Community Cohesion
  • Economic Development.

Promoting Tolerance and Opposing Extremism


The Oldham Muslim Centre works actively to promote tolerance and understanding. Along with all the local mosques, we are a member of the Oldham Mosque Council; this binds together Muslims from different backgrounds and strands of Islam. We enjoy excellent interfaith relations and the strength of these relationships has stood us all in good stead during the difficulties of recent years.

Several times each year we will open the doors of the mosque and centre, inviting people to visit and view an exhibition about Islam and Muslims. Our Imams and community workers encourage constructive engagement in society and a rejection of extremism in all its forms. We unequivocally reject all terrorism.


The Centre was bought by the local community, a 2.2m project. So far over £800,000 has been raised. The Islamic Forum Trust originally planned to build the Oldham Muslim Centre on a derelict land on Dunbar street in Oldham, however with the availability of the Compass House complex which was bigger and already built to house the facilities and services needed. The Land was sold for £300,000 to raise money for the purchase of the Compass House, the rest of the £500,000 has been raised mainly by the local community and also throughout the UK.

Yes, the Oldham Muslim Centre houses a Masjid inside.

It was inspired by the growing problems of social issues, poor education and health problems of mainly our Bangladeshi community in Oldham. The need for a centre that could tackle and solve these problems was in great need, thus the Islamic Forum of Europe took the initiative with the support and on behalf of the community to purchase the Compass House complex to deliver this dream, thus we have today The Oldham Muslim Centre (OMC).

The Oldham Muslim Centre is a project established by Islamic Forum Trust (charity of Islamic Forum of Europe).

The Oldham Muslim Centre has some paid staff that are responsible for the day to day running of OMC from finance management, to room booking and event catering organisation. Casual staff are employed at times during Ramadan and other busy periods to help meet the demands of the community and provide a 24 hour round the clock service.
