We celebrate the vital work of local communities in making London a welcoming place for people of all faiths and beliefs by bringing together local heroes and shining a light on their inspirational work. London’s diverse and vibrant population powers over 24,000 voluntary organisations. That is about one for every 360 Londoners. Many of these organisations are local community projects which draw on their faith or belief as motivation for their community work.
The Faith & Belief Forum believes this work needs to be celebrated and supported now more than ever. In 2017, 40 local projects received awards of £500 for their services to and for faith communities in London. An additional 32 projects were recognised for their services to and for faith and belief communities in Greater London. These projects demonstrate how Londoners from all faiths and beliefs can work together for a fairer and more inclusive city.
We are proud to announce that we will be hosting the 2nd Evening of Faith Recognition and Celebration in November 2018 – The event recognised the vital work of local communities in making London a welcoming place for people of all faiths and beliefs. This event has been made possible due to the continued support of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith.
This event is an opportunity to award and celebrate inspiration and success. Do you know unsung heroes who deserve recognition?
