Faith settings play a huge part in our community by providing spiritual and emotional solace, invaluable support for the most vulnerable people and guidance to the whole community. We want to support all settings to be able to do that in the safest way possible.
Although the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccination gives some hope of greater security, it is still vital that all faith settings are equipped to be COVID secure, by ensuring that buildings comply with government guidance to keep all worshippers and visitors safe.
The Faith COVID Assistance Partnership will work with faith settings to help those that remain open keep up the hard work required to maintain a safe environment, and to ensure those that are closed can be prepared to welcome people back.
The team is made up of three Faith Engagement Officers who are very happy to assist all faith settings with their needs and concerns with all things related to COVID-19.
Are there infection prevention items that your faith setting could use to make your community safer? Would you like to make sure that you are receiving the latest COVID-19 messages? Do you have any COVID-19 concerns or queries you’d like to raise with Tower Hamlets Council? Contact us using the form below and we’ll be in touch.
So far we have provided over twenty faith settings with vital infection prevention items, including Collingwood Islamic and Cultural Centre and Bishops Way Mosque (pictured).
