3FF – building good relations between people of different beliefs
In our diverse society, positive relations between people of different faiths, beliefs and cultures are essential. Unfortunately, we have all seen what can happen when those relations are not as strong as they could be, with recent increases in hate crime and tensions between communities.
3FF, the Three Faiths Forum, has worked tirelessly for over 20 years to build meaningful relationships between people of all faiths, beliefs and backgrounds, and to create a society where difference is celebrated.
3FF creates spaces in schools, universities, and the wider community where people can engage with questions of belief and identity and meet people different from themselves. Enabling people to learn from each other in this way is often the most effective way to tackle ignorance and challenge stereotypes – and create understanding and trust between people.
3FF’s programmes reach over 16,000 people a year. They include teachers and students, artists and professionals, political leaders in Parliament and upcoming leaders at university.
The organisation was founded in 1997 to encourage friendship, goodwill and understanding – originally between Muslims, Christians and Jews (hence the ‘three’ in the name). Today, however, the organisation works with people of all faiths and beliefs, both religious and non-religious.
3FF’s inclusive approach welcomes everyone – whether they’re Atheists, Buddhists, Hindus, Humanists, Zoroastrians, or identify with any other belief.
Everyone is welcome to join in building a more connected and supportive society. 3FF believes that intolerance has no place in society and that diversity adds value.
If you share 3FF’s belief in a more inclusive society, please get in touch and get involved.
