Working to safeguard faith institutions
We endeavour, through training and support, to ensure management of faith institutions have the right safeguards in place to protect the place of worship and its congregation.
In an environment of increasing far-right animosity to different faith groups, Faith Associates has been advocating for, and advising faith institutions on implementing steps to ensure that the institution, the management and the congregation are kept safe. We understand the risks that exists and are prepared to deal with an attack, should it occur.
We have seen a rise in the number of faith institutions that have been attacked in the UK, Europe, and the rest of the world, following the easing of lockdown restrictions. Even during a pandemic, the security of Faith Institutions needs to be a primary concern for trustees and management across the continent.
Faith Institutions and places of worship are locations that are open to the public, but this automatically creates an inherent security vulnerability for the religious leaders and their worshippers. The safety of worshippers inside and outside the building remains the number one priority.
Incident Management Guide
We produced an in depth Incident Management Guide for all faith institutions in partnership with Birmingham Council. Inside are step by step guidelines on how a Mosque should prepare, protect and respond to an attack.
Safety & Security Tips
This safety and security tips guide has been developed in partnership with various local councils and Mosques across the UK. It highlights the key steps and tips for Mosques to adopt to ensure they have the right safeguards in place for a safe area of worship.
Interested in training?
Our dedication to Mosque security for the past 15 years has created strong relationships with various Mosques & councils of Mosques across the UK, developing dedicated support networks for Mosques to engage with one another, sharing tips and security initiatives.
Our Mosque Security training provides Mosque staff with the information required to identify, reduce and remove harmful risks, successfully preventing attacks from occurring.
