    Faith and belief can be integral to people’s identity, how they see the world, and what is important to them.

Yet faith and belief inclusion is often overlooked, sometimes out of fear of ‘getting it wrong’. We can help.

    This National Inter Faith Week, you are warmly invited to join The Faith & Belief Forum at our training space in Kentish Town for networking and discussion over breakfast. Presentations will explore the common myth that talking about religion is necessarily awkward and uncomfortable, and how this idea harms employers and employees.
