Connecting faith organisations

Over the last two years, we’ve worked with local faith leaders to build connections between faith organisations and the wider voluntary and community sector.

 

What we've achieved since July 2014

We’ve trained more than 70 people from 54 organisations on religion and faith-based issues. Attendees said that as a result of our attending our training they’d a greater awareness of where people of faith were coming from and what they had to offer, they’d greater confidence in approaching people of faith, and they felt more empowered to tackle discrimination.

20 faith organisations benefited from attending our conferences, participating in our training programme and our mentoring programme, and receiving one-to-one support and advice.

We celebrated faith organisation’s activities at a celebrating faith in our community event in November 2015, held as part of inter-faith week. Nearly 200 people attended the event which included a market place which promoted organisation’s activities, talks from key local decision-makers, and ¬†workshops on issues of interest to faith organisations. People attending the event said that they benefited from networking with others and gained a greater understanding of faith organisations and their activities.
