Michael Underwood, Muhammad Ahmad BCAhon, Dame Mary Perkins, Co-Founder Specsavers

Muhammad Ahmad is a 25-year-old law graduate from Birmingham, who has raised over £150,000 for charity ‘Care & Relief Foundation’ during the past six years. He is committed to his community in a multi-faceted way, for aside from fundraising he also uses his law degree to help victims of domestic abuse to overcome their fear, loneliness and gives them confidence to make life-changing decisions.

Muhammad is active in helping those with addictions. To motivate drug addicts to stop using he has organised group talks which offer hope, and he provides professional help and mediation. He has successfully helped a number of individuals to stop.

To ensure that communities remain diverse and inclusive, Muhammad organises interfaith gatherings. He is also a strong supporter of anti- and de-radicalisation of young people. He engages with young people and answers their questions and concerns arising from their teachings. He has been involved in the publication of a book which has been endorsed by West Midlands Police, which has helped build trust, promote reconciliation, and reduce stigma and stereotypes in the Muslim community – it has also been instrumental in educating many at risk of being radicalised.
