Religion and Belief Good Practice Examples

Co-operative Funeralcare

The Co-operative Funeralcare commenced a multi-faith funeral project in 2005, to develop its ability to meet the funeral needs of different faiths. Work included staff training programmes on cultural awareness, refurbishment of a funeral home in Hounslow, which involved consultation with different community faith groups, and the provision of literature in Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi and Urdu. In November 2007, the Group won the Race for Opportunity (RfO) Chairman’s Award for Business Impact in recognition of the work undertaken to expand the provision of ethnic minority funerals by the Funeralcare business.

York College Case Study

The college in North Yorkshire had a designated prayer room, Oasis, incorporated into its design when it moved into new accommodation in September 2007.

Oasis is a room place where Muslims, Christians, Jews and people from other world faiths, or of no faith, can go to worship, pray or contemplate, and frequently do so side by side. Find out more here.
