Trust Building Forum:
Promoting mutual trust between British Muslims and the wider community
Build trust through:
Raising awareness and busting myths
Creating opportunities for interaction and dialogue
Train a network of ambassadors from various ethnic and religious background with the skills to promote mutual understanding and build relationships. Have ambassadors engage with and visit various audiences to deliver presentations geared towards myth busting.
Presenting a realistic and accurate message of peace and harmony to encourage each other to value commonalities rather than focus on differences
Sharing the ordinary lives of British Muslims as an essential part of the fabric of British society: working as teachers, taxi drivers, doctors, soldiers, students and good neighbours, and contributing to the economy of Britain
Listening to the concerns of our audience and creating a safe forum for them to ask difficult questions.
We believe in a United Kingdom where people are willing to get together and understand each other, and help in securing their communities against divisive fear and uncertainty. In a multi-faith and multi-ethnic Britain all religions and people of different ways of life live together as good neighbours.
The basic concepts underpinning the trust building project:
We believe that trust is a fundamental value which acts like glue in bringing diverse communities together. The trust building project was launched to promote trust among British Muslims and wider society through the shared British values of mutual respect, individual liberty, and care and love for neighbours.
