experience for my son. It
has really opened up his
world and has taught him
so much.”

- Parent of Linking Student

3FF’s Faith School Linking programme provides opportunities for young people from different faith
and belief backgrounds to meet and work together on a variety of activities throughout the year. 3FF
facilitates around 50 Primary and Secondary Links across London, and we are piloting our programme
in other cities.

3FF LINKING PARTICIPANTS WILL:
• Cultivate skills of enquiry, critical thinking, reflection
and communication.
• Acquire dialogue skills such as listening, speaking and
sharing.
• Foster trust, curiosity, empathy, awareness and
respect.
• Articulate the value of appreciating others in the
fullness of their identity – that this is key to being
able to succeed in our complex world.
• Deepen their understanding and knowledge of
different communities and beliefs.
Linking provides opportunities for children and young people to meet, build new relationships, work together and contribute to the wider community. It provides platforms and incentives for wider
communities around these schools to engage with the principles of School Linking, such as through accompanying visits, opportunities to volunteer or support, and celebration events.

“I enjoyed break time
because everybody
just merged together
automatically and we were
talking like we’d known
each other for ages.”
