Wales is a country with long-standing multicultural and multi-faith traditions which are deeply rooted in many communities. The friendship and respect between these communities is embodied by the Interfaith Council for Wales.

Events in the world can bring problems and tensions to the surface between communities of mixed cultures and faiths. In recognition of this, the Welsh Government set up the Faith Communities Forum to enable dialogue and close co-operation between the different faiths in Wales. The Interfaith Council for Wales is a member of the Faith Communities Forum.
