Online event showcasing faith contributions to the COVID19 response in Derby and building a network of diverse faith communities and activists.
Derby’s faith communities and groups have been crucial partners in the City’s emergency response to the pandemic. New experiences of collaboration and partnership across the city point towards changing relationships and mutual perceptions between faith organisations and local authorities, and what the implications might be for future policy.
This event will share inspirational examples of how communities, motivated by their faiths and beliefs have mobilised to support vulnerable people during the crisis. It will also reflect on the lessons learned, and the challenges and opportunities ahead for faith groups who want to continue working with local communities as part of the city’s recovery and beyond.
You can join us on Zoom on Wednesday 19th May at 5.30-8.30. Please book your attendance here.
Organised by the Multi-Faith Centre and Community Action Derby, the event is supported by Derby City Council’s Community Development Team and the University of Derby.
