All Faiths and None is a national UK NGO which encourages inter-faith/belief dialogue, discussion and action. It is a collaboration between Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh faiths – and the British Humanist Association. AFAN works closely with the Inter-Faith Network UK, and with local Inter-Faith Forums as well as colleges and schools.  Its main funded work is with young people in educational contexts, through Student Workshops, Training Sessions for Teachers and special events– eg during Inter-Faith Week, and a comprehensive website.

For the past 5 years AFAN has organised Inter-Faith Week activities for young people, primarily in colleges and schools.  This year AFAN will contribute to a Multi-Faith Europe event on November 26, and AFAN supports the newly-established European Network on Religion and Belief with resources, staffing and some funded work..

AFAN encourages local colleges and faith groups to organise their own activities at local level.  We are aware of over 70 local colleges (probably many more!) which collaborate with local faith/belief communities to organise Inter-Faith Week events in their local communities, including Inter-Faith Forums for discussions/debates, and also musical/cultural activities, art exhibitions, visits to places of worship, exchanges etc. AFAN staff led or were involved with all the activities listed below:
