Queen hosting reception to celebrate UK faith groups
The Queen is to celebrate the work of UK faith and belief groups in bringing local communities together during a reception at Buckingham Palace.
Representatives of different faiths and beliefs are among those invited to the event on Tuesday, including volunteers, community workers and people promoting social cohesion in their area.
The reception will recognise figures who have brought about positive change in their local neighbourhoods and celebrate work being done to support people of all ages and backgrounds.
This includes supporting young people to make positive life choices, bringing people together through cooking, providing food and clothing to the homeless, and supporting refugees and asylum seekers.
The Queen, as head of the nation and the Commonwealth, recognises and celebrates religious diversity in the UK.
