The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A city mosque opened its doors for the Peter­bor­ough Na­tional Autis­tic So­ci­ety to hold a sup­port ses­sion.

The ses­sion at the Masjid Khadi­jah And Is­lamic Cen­tre in Cromwell Road saw chil­dren and young peo­ple who have autism wel­comed within a fully in­clu­sive en­vi­ron­ment, rais­ing the pro­file of dis­abil­ity in­clu­sion within mosques. Peter­bor­ough Na­tional Autis­tic So­ci­ety branch chair Nazreen Bibi (pic­tured third from left) said: “It’s been a plea­sure working with the mem­bers of the Khadija mosque. “This ses­sion will form the foun­da­tion of a good working re­la­tion­ship.

“The feed­back from the par­ents/car­ers has been ex­tremely pos­i­tive and it’s a great plea­sure to be part of a dis­abil­ity in­clu­sion ini­tia­tive.”
