JAN Trust founder Rafaat Mughal Wins Local Legends Award at the National Lottery Awards 2019

Huge congratulations to JAN Trust Founder Rafaat Mughal OBE for being awarded the Local Legends Award for London!

It is incredibly fitting in the year JAN Trusts celebrates its 30thanniversary that the founder of the charity has been awarded the National Lottery Local Legends Award – a true testament to all she has done for the local community over the last 30 years.

In 1989, Rafaat founded JAN Trust having recognised the lack of services available locally to support marginalised women, and many services available, failed to effectively meet the needs of in particular of BAME and Muslim women. As a result local women had been approaching Rafaat for help because they felt they had nowhere else to turn, and since 1989, JAN Trust has been providing a safe space with specialised services to ensure the needs of marginalised communities in London are met. 

Through the JAN Trust, Rafaat has successfully changed the lives of thousands of women and families in Haringey and across London, providing continuous support for a range of challenges they may face. This success has only been possible as a result of her hard work and dedication, regardless of difficulties that have presented themselves over the last 30 years; the achievements she has made are truly inspiring. 

 

We thank you Rafaat. Your hard work, determination and dedication inspires us all at JAN Trust!
