On Monday 13 November 2017, As part of National Inter Faith Week (12-19 November), the Richmond Inter Faith Forum held a special event at York House with London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Mayor, Councillor Lisa Blakemore. The Forum meet regularly to discuss issues of mutual interest with the aim of making recommendations based on equality and inclusion, values which are core to the ethos of Richmond upon Thames College.


For this special meeting, the Forum reached out to local education establishments and invited representatives from the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE), Richmond and Kingston Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), Chaplaincy staff from St Mary's University and RuTC safeguarding and equalities officer, Cait Orton.


Attendees discussed a range of topics around working together as a community. The wide range of perspectives, based on different faiths and beliefs made for uniquely interesting discussions with good outcomes. The key outcome was that all groups call for unity and togetherness to benefit the community and local educational standards in a time of austerity and social tensions around issues such as Brexit.
