Inter Faith Week’s aims are to:

  • Strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels

  • Increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, in particular celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society

  • Increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs
