Welcome to the home of the Redbridge Faith Forum
Our vision is to work towards and build a community that respects, co-operates with and understands the integrity of each other’s beliefs, culture and traditions
We are an independent charity that aims to give Faith Communities in Redbridge a collective voice by identifying and addressing issues that affect residents.
What we do
We provide frequent opportunities for inter-faith dialogue through events and activities including
- Quarterly Network Meetings,
- Public Open Forums,
- Multi-Faith Social Events including the Annual Walk of Peace
- Partnership Work with other voluntary sector organisations to inform residents and encourage civic participation.
These events are open to all.
We are keen to work with schools to promote tolerance, understanding and equal opportunities.
Additionally, we have developed a thriving women’s group which enables women from different faiths to have healthy discussions on a range of topics of mutual interest that will help overcome ignorance, prejudice and cross barriers. The group brings women together across faith to gain the confidence and skills to bridge and link into different cultures. Workshops are held in the meeting spaces of varying faith community buildings
We actively support the Council with the Voluntary Sector Compact. (You can find out more about that in the resources section)
Who are we
Our inaugural meeting took place in December 2003 and registered as a Charity in 2006 (Reg No 1118675).
We are a strategic partner of the council and have an office in the Town Hall.
The charity employs two part-time members of staff who are assisted by a much-valued team of volunteers.
We have a Board of Trustees drawn from faith practitioners from all the main religions represented in the borough.
