    This report focuses on identifying ‘what works’ in engaging
    young British Muslim Pakistani men.

    There is a great deal of media and policy attention given to Muslim
    communities in Britain. Yet the debates about community cohesion,
    citizenship and belonging within policy often fail to address the
    complexities of male Muslim identities and their everyday experiences. Lessons from West Bowling Youth Initiative addresses this, through
    an in-depth exploration of the work of one grassroots organisation
    located in West Bowling, Bradford.

    The report highlights:

    the impact made by the WBYI in building social capital, developing
    active citizenship, encouraging participation in neighbourhood life
    and increasing awareness;

    the need for sustainability and flexibility in effective engagement
    with young British Muslim Pakistani men;

    the importance of building trusting relationships with local

    the effectiveness of capitalising on local talent and local networks
    for meeting community needs;

    the potential of creative arts informed project work.
