Our goal is to help people build their relationships with God and with each other. When our relationship with God is alive, then it helps us to build our other relationships - with family, with friends, with anyone. Faith in action means living what we believe. When we live what we believe then our faith is alive and we can bring peace into our communities.
The Awareness Foundation is an educational, ecumenical and international charity which was founded in 2003 in response to the disturbing increase in religious conflict and violence around the world.
The Foundation was established to help Christians make sense of their faith and culture in the 21st century, and to increase awareness of their neighbours’ faiths and cultures, so that they can live in a diverse society without fear and without compromising their beliefs. We believe that greater understanding among religions and among peoples will ultimately defeat extremism, and help nurture an environment where people can live together in peace.
The Foundation has two key vehicles, the Awareness Course and the Awareness Forum.
The Awareness Course is the Foundation’s education programme; it equips people for life in a diverse world, examining issues that affect every one of us, such as fundamentalism, the impact of globalisation around the world, and secularism. The Awareness Course can be taught anywhere.
The Awareness Forum is the Foundation's outreach programme, hosting special events to bring together opinion leaders for conferences, delegations, exchanges, roundtables and lectures.
The Awareness Foundation is a registered charity in England and Wales, No 1099873. Our Patron is the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Foundation is based in London, with offices in Washington DC, Damascus (Syria) and Amman (Jordan).
