The MCB has moved in recent years to be a more influential institution looking to improve the circumstance of British Muslims, both internally within the Muslim community as well as externally with the non-Muslim community.

The MCB’s primary objective is “to promote cooperation, consensus, and unity in Muslim affairs.”
