Communities Secretary Hazel Blears has announced plans for England’s first ever inter-faith week.

‘Inter Faith Week’ will take place from 15 to 21 November to strengthen inter-faith relations and celebrate the contribution of faith groups to society.

"People from different faiths are working at the heart of their communities to help disadvantaged people, including those whose jobs, homes or businesses may be at risk during these challenging economic times,” said Ms Blears.

“It's arguably more important than ever that people of different faiths and beliefs come together and are able to explore what they have in common.
