Plymouth Centre for Faiths & Cultural Diversity


We always appreciate your support to enable us to expand our services to schools in Plymouth and the surrounding area!



Thank you for contacting Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity (PCFCD).

We take the wellbeing and safety of our staff, speakers and customers extremely seriously and in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the national advice from the government relating to social distancing and non-essential travel, we have now temporarily suspended all current bookings.

Our office staff will be working predominantly from home until further notice and will be contactable via email as follows:

The office will be closed as planned for the Easter Break from 4pm on Friday 27 March 2020 until 10am on Wednesday 15 April 2020 and during this time, emails will not be monitored/returned.

We will continue to keep abreast of the national guidance and will be in touch again on/after our return on 15 April to provide a further update.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and we very much look forward to resuming normal service as soon as is practically possible.


Welcome to Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity


Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity (PCFCD) was established in 2001 and since its inception, has successfully created thousands of opportunities for children and young people to meet speakers from a variety of faiths and cultural backgrounds in schools and other settings.


These encounters allow children to experience the reality of religion as a way of living life and identify the values that all religions teach, thus enabling schools to address the statutory requirements of the 2014 “Engaging With Religion and World Views” Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, through lively and creative learning.


Through diversity they can see the common thread of human and spiritual values that underpin what it means to be human. These values ensure the future security and well-being of our local and international community and support the development of mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, key aspects of British values and community cohesion.



PCFCD is pleased to offer a range of services to support teaching and learning in Religious Education and the related Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural and British Values curricula. These include:

  • Visiting Speakers – People from all walks of life, able to communicate and interact clearly and sensitively about their beliefs and experiences
  • Workshops – Experienced specialist practitioners who can offer informative and engaging interactive workshops based on thier faith or culture
  • Visits to Places of Worship – Bringing classroom learning to life by arranging speaker-led visits to places of worship in Plymouth


We also offer adult education and training sessions for local professionals and groups seeking better understanding of the influence of belief, faith and culture in the workplace and across the community including but not limited to:

  • Understanding Islam
  • WRAP/Prevent
