At the Faith & Belief Forum we are very proud to have been involved in organising Barking & Dagenham Faith Forum’s inaugural Faith & Community Awards on Thursday 13th August.
Local champions celebrated at the online event hailed from a range of different faiths, cultures and beliefs, and have used these to inspire positive change and progress in Barking and Dagenham. 19 projects and community groups were recognized across various categories, which included Health and wellbeing, Inspiring youth, Environmental sustainability and the newly important, Outstanding Initiative in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic. Six projects were awarded Judges’ Choice Winner for their exceptional work.
The Awards were hosted by Barking & Dagenham Faith Forum. The Forum was founded in 2005 to demonstrate that faith builds community and to promote religious and racial harmony in Barking and Dagenham. The event was hosted online and was enjoyed by 100 participants. Organisations and projects that were featured ranged from foodbanks to local mosques, gurdwaras and churches, to dance crews and arts & crafts groups.
