About Us

Claystone is an independent think tank formed to offer research, analysis and reasoned solutions to foster social cohesion in relation to Muslims in Britain.

Why Claystone?

The last decade has seen the British Muslim community come under considerable scrutiny across the social and political spheres. With Muslims forming approximately 5% of the UK population, there is a pressing need to understand both the internal and external challenges they face and provide reasoned solutions. Leveraging grassroots expertise, coupled with an evidence-based methodology, Claystone seeks to bring a fresh approach to addressing these challenges.

We hope to realise our vision of a prosperous Muslim community that is confident in its faith, maintaining a positive contribution to British society.

Our approach is to conduct and publish high-quality research to inform public understanding and effect policy change in issues relating to the social, economic and political spheres.
