The protection of Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) is a priority of the Government's foreign policy. Projects that directly support FoRB are funded through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy. In 2017/18 the Magna Carta Fund will spend £758,717 on six Freedom of Religion or Belief projects. Bids to support FoRB work from the Magna carta Fund are currently being invited for financial year 2018/19.
