Interfaith Scotland is the national interfaith organisation for Scotland.
We work to help ensure good relations between the diverse religion and belief communities of Scotland and also to share good practice in interfaith dialogue, education, engagement and training nationally and internationally.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Interfaith Scotland has been working with faith communities and local interfaith groups across Scotland to assist them in their work of supporting communities at the grassroots level. For up-to-date information on the current crisis please go to the Scottish Government website. Find out more about the re-opening of Places of Worship in Scotland
