Inter Faith Network for the UK - E-bulletin Survey 2022

 
The Inter Faith Network for the UK works to promote inter faith understanding and cooperation in the UK. Its e-bulletin is issued every two months, both via email and on the website.  It highlights primarily new developments, inter faith projects and future events.

We would very much value your views on the e-bulletin: which content you find most helpful; if its format suits your needs; and what might be improved.  We know that all our readers are very busy but it would be tremendously helpful if you could take 10 minutes to respond to the questions in this short survey. 

All questions but number 1 are voluntary and they are mostly tick-box style for ease of response.  For those who would like to add greater detail, there is space to do so. The free-text boxes will expand as you type. If you would like to stop at any point, please click the 'save and continue later' button at the bottom of the page.

Thank you in advance for your help!
