Noor-Ul-Islam Trust is moving to temporary accommodation adjacent to its permanent home on the High Road in Leyton.

This move will allow demolition of the mosque and community centre and for a new complex (pictured) to be built in the coming months. This £8million project will provide improved facilities for the whole community, not just Muslims.

Following years of planning for this new project, the work is about to start. Many of the Trust’s existing services will now take place in temporary accommodation at 717–723 High Road, Leyton, however during the work, facilities will be restricted.

The Trust has been based on the High Road since its inception, 25 years ago, but its venue is now too small and in need of major repairs to house the ever expanding number of services.

It is the founding member of the all faiths community forum and often fund raises for various groups, including Age UK, Children with Leukaemia, NSPCC and the maternity section of Whipps Cross University Hospital.
