CSCA was invited to Number 10 Downing Street by Prime Minister David Cameron to take part in a reception to celebrate Eid Al Adha. Representing the CSCA and attending on their behalf was Farzana Kosar the General Secretary for the CSCA.

CSCA has dedicated a great deal of time working with Central Government on a range of community programs in relation to Social and Community Cohesion.

The CSCA is one of few stakeholder partners working directly with the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) on various community initiatives. The most recent activity was commemorating A Year in Service. This activity honors the important festivals of all Faiths through Social action (e.g. feeding the hungry).

The Prime Minister thanked all guests for attending the reception and wished everybody Eid al Adha Mubarak. He highlighted and made clear that Muslims are positive contributors to the country’s economy, politics, NHS, education and the society at large.
