Interfaith Week will take place in England, Wales and Northern Ireland from 13 to 20 November 2016.
Inter Faith week intends to:
- strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels in our increasingly diverse society
- encourage local faith groups and communities to reach out to each other and build stronger bonds of understanding and cooperation
- increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, with a particular focus on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society
- increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs
- encourage the development of new partnerships within local communities and by faith communities with statutory and third sector partners
- Information about the week can be found at www.interfaithweek.org for England and Wales

Here can be found information about the history of the link, a wide range of resources that are available for different groups and settings and, as the week approaches, news of the different events that are being planned.
