The Civil Service Diversity & Inclusion Strategy makes clear our commitment to addressing issues of faith and belief as part of our wider approach to inclusion. The strategy also makes clear our commitment to working with all government departments to achieve this goal.
We have a Civil Service Faith and Belief Champion in place (Clare Moriarty, Permanent Secretary DEFRA), and Faith and Belief departmental Champions in 26 departments (across Whitehall and agencies - including the Ministry of Defence and the Department for International Development), tasked with promoting faith literacy and inclusion in their departments.
The Champions and networks across Government have agreed a narrative that will underpin our work towards greater faith literacy.
Faith and Belief training is currently being developed for use by line managers, Champions and networks to support more inclusive environments for faith and belief in the Civil Service.
