Buddhist Council of Wales – Cyngor Bwdaidd Cymru
About the Buddhist Council of WalesThe Buddhist Council of Wales was established to bring together in harmony the various Buddhist traditions practising in Wales. It endeavours to ensure that Buddhism, as one of the recognised faiths in Britain, is represented at government, civic and faith occasions in Wales. Representatives from the Council attend meetings of the Interfaith Council for Wales and the National Assembly for Wales Faith Communities Forum.
National Assembly for Wales Faith Communities ForumTwo representatives—usually the Chair and Vice Chair—serve on the National Assembly for Wales Faith Communities Forum chaired by the First Minister. The Forum enables leaders of the major faith communities to discuss issues that affect the social, cultural and economic life of Wales. It promotes a dialogue between the National Assembly for Wales, the Welsh Assembly Government and faith leaders.
Interfaith Council for WalesThe same two representatives are appointed by the Council to serve on the Interfaith Council for Wales where members of the various faith communities can meet and share faith to faith issues. It has access to the members of the Faith Communities Forum and can report issues which may be brought to the attention of the Welsh Assembly Government. http://www.interfaithwales.org
