Slough is a multi-cultural town;  people living here have many different nationalities, languages, belief systems, customs and traditions, but we all share the same values of peace, respect, wisdom and harmony.

Throughout the year, Slough Faith Partnership promotes these values by organizing activities involving different faiths and community groups with the aim of increasing mutual understanding and providing opportunities to exchange ideas, socialise, and work together. This year we are proud to be holding an awareness walk in the town centre on Sunday Nov 18th, where we will meet members of the public and encourage them to get involved with our work.
