The Beacon Project

To raise the community’s profile and celebrate its achievements, the YCA were keen to explore the heritage of Yemenis in Eccles. In 2010 they formed a partnership with the Ahmed Iqball Ullah Education Trust and The University of Salford, to gauge existing levels of knowledge and interest. Together they created a questionnaire and organised a celebration day, to consult with local people. The response was extremely positive helping to secure further support from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop Yemeni Roots Salford Lives.
