The Hindu Forum of Britain (HFB) is the largest umbrella body for British Hindus with more then 350 member organisations from around the country. As such HFB is the first port of call for the central government, various government bodies, media and many other faith and inter-faith organisations
HFB’s activities are broadly divided into three areas: public policy and community consultation for the government; capacity building and project development for the Hindu community; and developing good interfaith relations with other faith communities to build a cohesive and inclusive Britain. At the core of the Forum’s activity is a strong belief in the richness and diversity of the Hindu culture, its value system that encompasses for respect for all beings and faiths and a cultural heritage that facilitates community cohesion and coexistence.
Contributions to RE
As part of the public policy consultation work, Hindu Forum of Britain has been involved in the past in contributing to the drafting of RE curriculum. We have a committee within our organisation, which specifically looks into Religious Education in England and Wales. HFB closely interacts with the government and the Religious Education Council for England and Wales omn matters of Religious Education.
