The protection of Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) continues to be a priority for the UK Government. Projects that directly support FoRB overseas are funded through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO)'s Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy. In 2017/18 the Magna Carta Fund will spend £758,717 on six FoRB projects. We will open for bids to support FoRB work in the 2018/19 financial year, early in the next calendar year.
