West Wiltshire Multi Faith Forum

The West Wiltshire Multi Faith Forum has three main aims – empowerment, engagement, and education – to allow people of different faiths or no faith to learn about each other and discuss issues which will help to remove perceived misunderstandings and inbuilt prejudices.  It holds a variety of activities and events, provides training, runs groups and gatherings and community projects.

In June 2017, the Allen Lane Foundation awarded funding over a two year period of £2,500 pa to the Forum.  The grant is towards costs of English classes which benefit migrants and refugees in around the Trowbridge area.  The provision of English classes aim to reduce isolation and stigma for individuals, and to improve community cohesion.
