“without the spin ...... just results”

We do not use slogans or have objectives which do not have some lasting impact on the communities around us and who we serve. In short if it does not practically benefit our community we do not indulge in it, see About us

Al-Nasr Trust
"Al-Nasr policy is based on the premise that solutions to problems that face communities are easier to solve in an atmosphere of cultural, religious and educational understanding". Communities interacting with one another without sacrificing their identities can achieve much more with cooperation and mutual respect rather than working in isolation.

WE LOOK DEEPERAl-Nasr not only responds to critical individual cases it looks deeper into how these problems become prominent in a community and attempts to provide longer term strategies to educate the community on how to avoid these problems in future.

Think outside the boxWe try to "think out of the box" when it looks at solutions to issues in the community but it does not take a distant overview when looking at problems it always strives to work closely with clients and the rest of the community to try and bring about lasting solutions rather than a quick fix and that needs the interaction and cooperation of everybody involved to ensure comprehensive understanding of how the problem originates at the root because unless you do, it is unlikely a permanent solution will be found.

SQPSlough Quality Protects – Gold Award 2012

We recently received our GOLD AWARD under the above scheme which we are very happy about – However we owe much to SCVS for their help and support during the process so a big thank you to them.

The Slough Quality Protects programme has been developed by the Voluntary Sector to help organisations demonstrate the quality of their work in a coherent and consistent way. It is designed to help local community and voluntary organisations to think about and clarify their principles and values and to be able to show this in their day to day operations. The award is targeted at organisations who have decided that they want to demonstrate the high standard of their work and to prepare for a formal national quality standard.

Current Activities

Slough Youth Club

Slough Youth Club

We identified the need a long time ago but did not have sufficient resources to start the project anyway rather than delay any longer we opened the project on 16 July 2012 regardless and our long term beliefs about the vital need have been confirmed. We have 145 youth signed up and the daily sessions between 4pm-8pm have an average attendance of 25 per session. The impact is that these youth are spending these hours playing table tennis, air hockey, pool, video games, table football instead of hanging around the streets and being vulnerable to criminals and drug dealers. On this project we need volunteers, equipment and donations to maintain the Club so please contact us if you are able to help.


We are a small independent and organisation not affiliated to any international or national body so raising funds to run our services is often difficult and we welcome any donation from individuals, you may do this by telephoning us on 01753 550788 or contacts us by e-mail info@al-nasr.org or alternatively you can donate online through LocalGiving website using this link below www.localgiving.com/charity/alnasr


Employment Support Unit

Support for young unemployed people with mentoring to increase confidence, adjust attitude and increase motivation. CV building, advice and support with job applications, work experience placements. www.jobclub8.org


Domestic Violence & Forced Marriage Service

Support for women/men who need immediate help, workshops, leaflets and advice. See our web/blog site www.blacknblue.org.uk

Social Services

Al-Nasr has interacted with Social Services over the years on issues of adoption, fostering of children, children in care, domestic violence and the tenets regarding these issues. Although adoption itself is not allowed in many Asian cultures, long term fostering is allowed. This ensures a child is not torn away from his/her identity/roots which can often result in emotional or identity problems later in life.

Family / Financial Advice

Al-Nasr has mentored and advised many families on issues that have affected them whether it is problems with teenage children, financial problems, family rifts, housing or employment problems our policy has and always will be to respond to those who seek our help in way that educates them as to how the problem arose in the first place so it can be avoided in future.

Drug Abuse

Al-Nasr has mentored many young people in order for them to free themselves of addiction or use of drugs and become productive members of Society. People who are addicted to substances do not respond to being preached to, they need guidance and most of all support because addiction is more often than not the symptom or result of some underlying personality problem.

Community Hours

Al-Nasr receives regular placements from Berkshire Probation Service with the policy of providing training to encourage them not to re-offend.

Library & Leaflet Service

Our small library and leaflet service is there for all to quietly read and learn regardless of religion, race or culture and all are welcome to use it.
