Londoners working to serve their communities and bring people from different backgrounds together were recognised at the London Faith & Belief Community Awards on Tuesday 27 November. 40 projects run by individuals and organisations, inspired by their faiths or beliefs to make a difference, were given awards for their work in areas ranging from inspiring youth and wellbeing to interfaith relations and inclusion.
The Awards are an initiative of the Faith & Belief Forum, supported by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith. The Awards aim to shine a light on the great work done by ordinary people to make London a city where everyone belongs and feels welcome – work that often goes unrecognised. Each winning project is given £500 to further their work.
The award ceremony at the Royal Society of Medicine brought together organisations and individuals from across London who work tirelessly in their local communities for harmony and inclusion. In addition to the 40 projects given awards, the achievements of several inspiring individuals were recognised, and the great work of a further 32 projects highlighted.
