Your local faith forum

Map of London Boroughs from South London Inter Faith Group

How are things going with your local faith forum?

  • Are local councils (& police, NHS) able to reach their local faith communities to discuss priority issues?
  • Do religious groups contribute to policy and decision-making?
  • Education ♦ hate crime ♦ cohesion ♦ Prevent strategy ♦ equalities/discrimination ♦ stop & search ♦ planning ♦ neighbourhood policing ♦ health care ♦ employment ♦ emergencies ♦ end of life care – what are the issues that deserve attention?
  • Who sets the agenda?  Who is involved?  Who pays?  How does it work?
  • How do SACRE and Borough Deans fit in?  Is inter faith dialogue one of the activities?
  • What happens when key people leave?  Is limited time used well?
  • Twitter, texts, meetings, websites, blogs – what works best?
  • Is the future bright & rosy?  Or not?

  1. We had a full house on Tuesday with nearly 30 practitioners from across Greater London from both the public sector and local faith forums, including people from at least seven of the main world religious traditions. Thank you to Charles Braddick-Southgate for arranging ideal meeting rooms at Camden Council and to Jai Jayaraman from Lambeth Mediation Service for guiding us through the main topic of the meeting.

    Our next meeting is scheduled for 31st January (morning) in Victoria and will focus on environmental issues – a lot of excellent work going on and we’ll be hearing about it.
