The Faith-based Regeneration Network UK (FbRN) is the leading multi faith network for community development, community regeneration and social action. FbRN brings together practitioners for sharing ideas and good practice, to encourage each other and to enable them to link with the makers of public policy.
The Inter Faith Network for the UK was founded in 1987 to promote good relations between people of different faiths in this country. Its member organisations include representative bodies from the Baha'i; Buddhist; Christian; Hindu; Jain; Jewish; Muslim; Sikh; and Zoroastrian communities; national and local inter faith bodies; and academic institutions and educational bodies concerned with inter faith issues.
The East of England Faiths Council was formed to facilitate the major faith traditions represented in the region in making input to relevant strategy and issues, to act as a clear point of contact for public, private and voluntary bodies; to support local inter faith and faith activity; and to promote the contribution of faiths to the life and well being of the region.
The Multi-Faith Centre, University of Derby. The Multi-Faith Centre exists to promote mutual understanding between people of different faiths and beliefs and to build respect between people as fellow human beings. The Centre is a shared space where people are invited to speak freely and fearlessly, in the spirit of listen to others as you want them to listen to you'.
The Coexistence Trust builds networks of trust and understanding between Muslim and Jewish students on UK campuses.
