About Us

Leicester Council of Faiths promotes trust, understanding and co-operation among the city’s faith communities, speaks up for their viewpoint on significant issues, and provides reliable information to civic authorities, service providers, educational institutions and local media.

Since its formation in 1986, Leicester Council of Faiths has become widely recognised as a key player in establishing, maintaining and promoting Leicester’s reputation as a place where people of different religions and beliefs co-exist peacefully. Our current membership includes representatives of the city’s Bahá’í, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh communities. We work alongside other groups and organisations that encourage tolerance, mutual respect, community cohesion and a world-embracing vision.
