New faith review seeking evidence from public

A new review is seeking views from the public, and from experts in the field, on the government’s engagement with faith organisations.
The Independent Faith Engagement Review is looking at how the government can best celebrate and support the contribution of faith groups, break down barriers and promote acceptance between faiths, and promote shared values, while tackling cultures and practices that are harmful.
The process began in October 2019, but with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic how the government engages with faith groups during the recovery period has become even more important. 
The Bishop of London, the Rt Revd Sarah Mullally, who leads the Church of England’s Recovery Group, said: 
“Faith is at the heart of so many of our communities, across the length and breadth of the country.  
“This welcome consultation from the Government is an opportunity to demonstrate and explore how faith enriches and empowers our lives and our relationships with one another.  
“I believe it can play a fundamental role in building a stronger, more tolerant society for the future.  
“I would urge as many people as possible to get involved by responding to the consultation, ensuring that the voices of our faith communities are heard.”
