Welcome to the Hampshire Interfaith Network
Hampshire Interfaith Network
We have identified two important objectives in building a more respectful interfaith community for working towards a better civil society across Hampshire. The Network
- promotes mutual understanding between people of faith through their various representatives.
- liaises with public service providers to help facilitate better service delivery to hard to reach persons within those faith communities.
We hope you will find the site of interest, but should you require further information then please do contact us. The Interfaith movement is gaining in momentum and we wish to help and support any faith and community groups who need our help in Hampshire.
