Al-Hilal Regeneration Enterprise (CIC), a grassroots local community interest company (CIC) based in North Manchester, places great emphasis on working with women and young people from a BAME (Black and Minority Ethnic) background. The geographical area we serve is mainly North Manchester, primarily Cheetham and Crumpsall and the surrounding areas. Initially named Cheetham Al-Hilal Community Project, established in 1978, it was later rebranded and taken over by three passionate local ladies, who became Directors on 6th June 2015. The vision of the directors remains the same as the founder of the organisation and they themselves celebrated the successes and achievements of the old organisation and were instrumental to seeing it develop over the years.
Our Latest Projects
Al Hilal Project has been running projects for the community for many years, focussing particularly on the youth and engaging meaningfully with local communities based on their needs such as health and wellbeing, running exercise and healthy cooking classes, exploring alternative therapies and raising funds for the war torn, marginalised and afflicted people around the world and at home
One of their latest projects was bringing together teenagers to reflect and learn about their surroundings, the geography and history of where they live, engaging them in creating a greater awareness and valuing being a part of the community.
Having such projects is extremely beneficial as it engages those who ordinarily wouldn’t engage in activities due to differences in cultures and languages. Harnessing the participation of local people is core to developing more caring communities and can increase a sense of confidence and broader awareness of the challenges and solutions which we can work on together.
To the unsung heroes of our communities. God Bless you for all that you do.
One of the reasons why I sent my children to the Al Hilal youth club was for them to learn to engage and interact with children and adults who they are not use to.
My children were continuously encouraged to be proud of their skills and were praised consistently. In the process they learnt so much about the community and were involved and active in all team activities.
The difference in their confidence is amazing. Thank you.
I was therefore very pleased to see the calibre and focus in the work of Al Hilal Regen Enterprise who have delivered a range of professional Parent and Toddler Groups, youth work Health and spoken word events.
My family have benefitted and I will always be happy to support such an organisation led by Women but for everybody..
I and my children continue to participate and volunteer in many community projects organised by Al Hilal Regeneration CIC.
In 2017, North Manchester Sisters (NMS) Community group was established ( I was one of the co-founders). NMS and AlHilal Regeneration CIC have been working collaboratively in community events to promote community cohesion and to tackle social isolation.
It has been a pleasure to work with Sandra,Robina and Sundus on the many projects and I am looking forward to having many more productive collaborations between NMS and Al Hilal
It provided me with opportunities to meet professionals in the healthcare system through which I received speech therapy for my child, valuable information about a nutritious diet and exercise among many other things.
I can’t thank the organisation and the incredibly hard working people behind it enough for their valuable time, effort and care for the community.
