An Overview

2008/9 has seen Blackburn with Darwen Interfaith Forum working hard and fully engaged in activities across the borough to fulfil its purpose of facilitating greater understanding and co-operation between people of different faiths and others. This report looks back at this busy year taking stock of what has been achieved whilst recognising that there is still much more to do. The organisation has changed its name from Interfaith Council to Interfaith Forum which we believe more accurately describes our work. We have also become a charity and now have Trustees who are responsible for the running of the Interfaith Forum and ensuring its work meets the requirements of the Charity Commission.

The Interfaith Forum has a range of local partners from both the voluntary and statutory sectors and has a successful and effective long term working relationship with Blackburn with Darwen Community Voluntary Service as well as the Town Council. The Interfaith Forum places great importance on partnership working and pledges itself to proactively seek opportunities to work with a range of partner organisations going forward.

I would like to take this opportunity to express sincere thanks to member faiths of theForum and their representatives for the work they have done and the support given to the Interfaith Forum’s activities and events over the last 12 months without which they could not have been done. On behalf of the Forum I would particularly like to express thanks for the continued support of the Community Voluntary Service and for all the work that Sadiq Patel has done as their Officer who has particular responsibility for facilitating and supporting the work of the Interfaith Forum.

Derek Estill (Chair)
