The Inter Faith Forum for Leicestershire was developed in July 2008 as a network to promote greater understanding and awareness of religion, faith and belief.
It brings together representatives from faith communities, along with other interested individuals and professionals, from across the County and provides space for open and honest discussion and debate about a wide range of topical issues affecting the different faith communities in Leicestershire. The Forum is also a member of the UK Inter Faith network.
The purpose of the Inter Faith Forum for Leicestershire is to:
provide support for faith communities to build up their social capital
encourage faith communities to develop in ways which they are at ease with themselves and others
oppose all forms of faith discrimination and religious hatred
encourage the building of social cohesion between faith communities
provide a focus for dialogue and the development of mutual understanding across Leicestershire
encourage good quality relationships with the wider Leicestershire community
provide a place where differences can be openly discussed
share best practice, take a joint approach to problem solving and work together on these shared aims
build links with public bodies across the county including, but not limited to the local authorities, police and the local NHS Trusts
provide a place where policy makers can consult with faith communities
