Britain’s Jain community makes a positive contribution to life in this country. This Government values its contribution immensely.

The Jain Community are currently not members of the Department for Work and Pensions’ Operational Stakeholder Engagement Forum. The forum meets quarterly and enables stakeholders and representatives to shape operational delivery, build positive relationships and communicate key messages, such as national departmental events.

The Government is always keen to work with the Jain community on matters that are important to them, and we will continue to do so. The Jain Community would be very welcome to join the departmental forum.
