Prior to establishing the not-for-profit organisation, the Directors of Muslim Care passionately served the community for over 25 years. The desire to serve and nurture the vulnerable has always been a driving force that prompted endeavours to work with Senior Citizens and the wider community. Muslim Care was launched in 2014 with a Day Centre, providing regular activities promoting well-being and independence with social and health-related services, supporting a number of elderly community members in the South Western Sydney area. Home care assistance was also offered and associated transport services. Plans are underway to extend services to the wider community. This will allow Muslim care to offer leadership programs for vulnerable youth, information and support for victims of domestic violence, financial counselling, crisis assistance, programs for people with disability, adult education, opportunities for volunteers and much, much more.

To develop philosophies, policies, services, facilities and programs for the care and well-being of youth, aged and disadvantage persons. To provide educational, financial and social opportunities that will enhance resilience in communities.
There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often. (Qur’an 33:21)
To facilitate programs for the care and well-being of the elderly, the youth, disabled and disadvantaged persons, whilst working in a mutually beneficial partnership with leaders, organisations and the wider community. And to be a strategic learning institution that values, promotes and encourages learning and Islamic understanding at all levels.
If you give charity openly then what a good thing it is, and if you give to beggars covertly it is better for you than everything, and He will remove some of your sins. And Allah is aware of what you do. (Qur'an 2:271)
