Faith Communities Navigator
Britain’s high streets, schools, universities, and workplaces have never been more diverse. In these times of increased population movement, high media interest, international conflict, increased secularism and for many, a search for the spiritual, there has never been a more important time to explore, understand, and appreciate our faith communities.
The Faith Communities Navigator is a new and exciting addition to the armoury available to those wishing to know more about the lives, beliefs and values of the UK’s diverse faith communities. Developed exclusively by FRF’s Policy Unit, the Navigator aims to allow users to be able to navigate their way through the rich and diverse patchwork that is represented by the UK’s faith communities and build upon FRF’s previously well received work in this area on behalf of third sector, UK Government, and commercial clients.
The Faith Communities Navigator will provide organisations in the public, private, and voluntary sectors with a detailed resource and training programme to guide them through the lives and beliefs of Britain’s major faith groups. It will help them meet their obligations under the employment equality regulations and, most importantly, will help them provide better services and employment conditions that take into account the needs and obligations of those from faith groups. Using expert contributors from a wide range of faith groups ensures that there is now a resource that provides a balanced and authoritative view of faith in Britain and a tool to build better services and businesses.
