Naz and Matt Foundation is a charity based in the United Kingdom that tackles homophobia triggered by religious and cultural beliefs. The Foundation campaigns in the national media and give talks in schools and universities. They provide support to LGBTQI individuals and their family to help resolve challenges linked to sexuality, gender identity and religion.

The organisation was established in 2014 following the death of Dr Nazim Mahmood,[2] by his long term fiancé Matthew Ogston.[3]
