London Islamic Cultural Society
23rd July 1983, London Islamic Cultural Society was formed in the home of President Abdool & Sister Raheema Alli by a small group of Muslims predominantly from Guyana, South America,
who saw the need to bring together its members both religiously and socially.
The primary aim of the Society was to engage, communicate and support the diverse community by establishing a Mosque/Cultural Centre and to provide essential services which would also benefit the wider multi-ethnic community. LICS was officially registered in 1983 as a charity.
LICS is a unique and dynamic organisation who work in partnership with communities to provide essential services to our users and local community. We provide educational services, youth programmes, counseling, advice on welfare benefits, marriages, conversions, support with problems such as relationship breakdown, funerals, and support for the elderly and families, observance of Islamic events, in addition to religious guidance. The future of our communities’ rests in the hands of our youths, they need guidance and support to understand and shape the future. LICS are committed to working for peace and harmony within our communities.

walking with him on this journey.
