The London Faith and Belief Community Awards celebrate the creative, generous and vital work of London’s faith and belief communities by bringing together local heroes and shining a light on their inspirational work.
Organised by the London Faith and Belief Forum, there are 40 awards made of £500 each. They seek to celebrate work that is often overlooked and marginalised.
This year there are 6 categories to nominate under:
• Community resourcefulness in response to Covid-19
• Health and well-being
• Inspiring youth
• Interfaith relations
• Promoting inclusion
• Supporting women
You may nominate your own work or that of others.
Projects can be run by a registered charity or a community group and could be one initiative of a larger organisation or a project that is run by a place of worship or community group. It may be run entirely by volunteers or have paid staff.
The project nominated could work across communities or within its own community (ie. it does not have to have an interfaith focus) but it should have been up and running for over a year.
In addition to the cash award, winners of the awards have the opportunity to attend the planned awards ceremony in central London (29 November 2021), meet and connect with 300 individuals and groups from across London’s faith, belief and community sector, gain access to free training and more.
The closing date for entries is 11pm on 19 July 2021.
