Muslim Aid to appoint new trustees and publish new constitution

In 2018 the former board of trustees at Muslim Aid were found guilty of “serious mismanagement”

Muslim Aid will appoint new trustees, become a charitable incorporated organisation, and put a new constitution in place to resolve issues being investigated by the Charity Commission.

The Charity Commission opened a statutory inquiry into the charity in 2013 and appointed an interim manager, Jehangir Malik, last October.

TPP Recruitment has now been appointed to find six new trustees, including a chair and treasurer.

Jehangir Malik became Muslim Aid chief executive last September. He was previously chief executive at Islamic Relief for over 20 years.

In October Michael King of Stone King was appointed as interim manager to review the governance infrastructure, as well as the financial controls in relation to its domestic and international operations.

The Charity Commission opened an inquiry in 2013 after the charity notified the regulator of non-compliance with some operational aspects in two field offices.
