The Conservative Muslim Forum (CMF) is an integral part of the Conservative Party and all CMF members are full members of the Party.

We promote a Conservative Party for all.

We believe that the fundamental values of Muslim Britons, such as the importance of the family, scepticism of state control, a belief in private enterprise, low taxes and personal responsibility make them natural Conservatives. Our Party's task, in which we play our full part, is to convert this potential into support and membership.

The CMF's full objectives are set out on the Objectives page. They can be summarised as encouraging British Muslims to play their full part in the political life of our country, and in particular to support the Conservative Party, join the Conservative Party and stand as Conservative Party candidates.

We also advise Conservative candidates campaigning to Muslim voters. If you are a candidate and think we can help just get in touch.
