The My Voice Project – equipping young people to be change makers

Your voice matters

Engage and participate

With the rise of violent crime, be it gang violence or, extremism, the voice, opinions and ideas of young people are not heard – often drowned by polarising groups.

We will not allow prejudice, discrimination, hate and violence to break our communities!

The Faiths Forum works to empower faith communities, by providing a platform to build capabilities and relationships, with important stakeholders, ranging from Government to social media giants like Twitter, senior faith leaders, policymakers and think tanks.

We launched the “My Voice” project to act as a platform to equip young people with the knowledge and skills to amplify their voices to be heard more effectively and empower them to address the issues that matter, be it about jobs, Islamophobia, racism, integration etc.

This summer we are working with the Cabinet Office to launch the first ever Democracy Week campaign – and will be recruiting serious changer makers to join the programme – CLICK HERE to learn more.

We offer training accredited by the Institution for Leadership and Management, to enhance the skills of young people in positions of leadership – and have built partnerships with media specialists to deliver training around Strategic Communications and Campaign Building.

Our flagship Living Together Programme has been designed and developed by practitioners from diverse faith traditions to create a space to discuss; integration, inequality, radicalisation and sectarianism. It will be complemented with professional media, PR and strategy training to enhance

We also run sessions enabling our participants to meet policymakers from Downing Street, The Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government officials, and experts in leading PR firms and civil society leaders.
