Leicester Zakat - Providing support in Leicester & surrounding areas

Who do we help?

Our service is open to struggling families with children, the elderly and those affected by illness or disability.
Applicants who are not eligible to receive Zakat are helped via a seperate Sadaqah fund.

Please bear in mind that we are a small charity with limited funds, and hence sometimes have to make difficult decisions as to who we can and can’t help.

What type of help do we offer?

We may able to help with food parcels, shopping vouchers and small emergency grants, every case is different and treated individually. The decison as to what we offer you is made after receipt of a fully completed application.

We do our best to get back to you as soon as possible, over 90% of applications are dealt with on the same day, and if successful receive assistance within 24/48 hrs. Requests received over the weekend are dealt with as soon as possible but may have to be dealt with on Monday.

Sorry this service is not suitable for street homeless, and we are currently not accepting applications from asylum seekers.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a food bank, we do not issue one-off food parcels.
