Faiths United is a coalition of faith leaders and activists representing all nine major faiths responding to the COVID-19 crisis.
Set up at the start of the pandemic in March 2020, we provide a forum for faith communities to discuss common challenges, to share best practices, and to drive joint responses.
The group is action-focussed, and strives to support the most vulnerable in our communities.
We have convened faith leaders and activists on regular Zoom calls with guest speakers including leaders from the British Medical Association, Royal College of Nursing and Royal Voluntary Service.
Webinars and Events
We partnered with SFI to run a two-day conference, "Building Resilience to the Covid-19 Pandemic and Beyond", which included an interactive Webinar and culminated in a panel of philanthropists such as John Studzinski CBE and Mohamed Amersi, discussing potential sources of funding for Faith Organisations beyond the Government. In the summer of 2020, we held a Key worker thank you evening and a “Faiths, Jobs and Business” webinar.
Social Action and Projects
We are proud to work closely with our Youth Network, who have done inspiring work to bring young people of faith together during the pandemic, to educate and entertain them, and to support others through their volunteering programme
