Helping with Harvest Festivals
The Farming Community Network (FCN) offers support material and other resources to help with the preparations.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission has launched a call for evidence on the contested issue of religion or belief in the workplace and service delivery, covering all faiths, beliefs and experiences in England, Scotland and Wales. This is part of a 3-year programme aimed to ‘increase understanding of religion or belief in public life, improve knowledge about what happens in practice and ensure that the laws that protect everyone’s right to be treated with fairness, dignity and respect are effective’. An online survey will receive submissions until mid-October.
