IDC has a long running partnership with universities in the North East. After training up islamic society volunteers to become Islamic Awareness Facilitators,we dont just leave them to go it alone, we help and support their efforts at various events through the year. The first of which is usually the Freshers Fayres.
This year IDC was at Newcastle University, Northumbria university (city and coach lane campus) and at Sunderland University. Over the 5 days our volunteers engaged with 350 people at the Freshers Fayres.

IDC Northeast were once again invited to take part in freshers week with Northumbria University Islamic Society. Following years of collaboration, IDC sent down a team to converse about Islam with attendees, sign them up to the Islamic Society and hand out samosas.
This year was a bit different not only because of Northumbria ISOC’s new bright yellow T shirts but also IDC were given the chance to partake in the freshers stall at Northumbria University’s Coach lane campus as well.
