About

Faith institutions have a unique role in leveraging social capital in communities to address key city priorities but also to support marginalised communities. They can be effective in tackling hate crime and extremism and work towards improving social cohesion. They are embedded in communities, and can, therefore, channel resources to support city priorities. CFCF combines the strengths of key interfaith networks in Europe and is in a strong position to act as a bridge between local governments and citizens. 

Our vision is to promote strategic faith and community collaboration across and between major cities in Europe.

Our mission is to provide a platform across leading cities in Europe for facilitating and developing learning and sharing best practice through positive engagement between faith groups, city governments and institutions, in order to build a more inclusive and integrated cities. 

We will specifically seek to engage local city governing bodies (City Mayors and local authorities) in order to most effectively meet the needs of city residents. 

Our focus is strategic intervention, addressing issues and challenges that affect faith communities in cities, such as poverty, mental health, literacy, education, security, homelessness and the environment. 

“Power in the 21st century belongs to the problem-solvers. National governments debate and dither. Cities act, cities do.”

Our Aim

  • Celebrating diversity and enabling the contribution of faith communities towards social cohesion; 

  • Tackling extremism, hate crime and building resilience

  • Helping to shape and develop policies and programmes which enhance integration 

  • Seeking to improve the standard of living for migrant and resident communities alike 

Our Methodology will be to build consensus and strategic partnerships leading to creating inclusive cities. We will promote the sharing of 

resources and best practice and the open exchange of ideas and programmes across cities in Europe.
