Message from the Directors, Faith in Society Ltd.

Welcome to our website. 2021 is the sixth year of Faith in Society’s work and we have been working on several exciting projects. Many of these involve supporting faith communities to deal with the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, for instance by fundraising for food delivery and mental health projects to help those worst affected. We are supporting work that brings together Coventry’s diverse communities to regenerate the inner city and to contribute to the City of Culture. We have also secured a generous National Lottery Heritage Fund grant for a project to collect the oral histories of those who volunteered to help the Ugandan Asian refugees in 1971/2, and we are excited to be working with the Indian Overseas Trust on the delivery of the project. Our co-Director Warwick continues his close involvement with the Faiths Forum for London, supporting its strategy development, fund-raising and engagement with Black-majority Churches.

With this country facing so many challenges with the pandemic and post-Brexit, we feel there is even more need for faith communities and wider civil society to reach out to each other, both locally and nationally. Even small actions can demonstrate care and respect for others. Faith in Society will continue to support places of worship, public sector bodies and charities large and small in this crucial endeavour.

Warwick Hawkins and Jenny Kartupelis.

With Warwick’s support, we were able to develop a number of projects and identify suitable funding. Warwick understood FODIP’s values and aims very well.  His continued support enabled a successful funding application, which will allow us to continue our much-needed work.  Warwick was splendid to work with.

Warwick assisted the charity in successfully securing several grants – all providing much-needed funds to help the UK Jewish community at large. Warwick’s help and guidance was immense and without him, we would have not secured the support.  JBCS is enormously thankful for all his help.
