Supporting collaboration and understanding between all faiths

The Multifaith Advisory Group comprises 27 religious leaders from various Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Jewish and Bahá'í communities.  The Group is chaired by the Chairperson of the Victorian Multicultural Commission.  

Working with Victoria’s faith leaders to address issues that affect the whole community

The Multifaith Advisory Group assists the Victorian Government to understand and appropriately respond to faith-related issues in Victoria and to support people from a diverse array of cultural and religious backgrounds.  

The group meets regularly for robust conversation on contemporary matters affecting faith communities and has provided advice on a range of issues, such as family violence policy, forced marriage and human trafficking.

Coming together to give thanks and show support in times of crisis

The Multifaith Advisory Group along with the Faith Communities Council of Victoria brought faith and political leaders together on the steps of Parliament House on Tuesday 4 February 2020 to acknowledge the loss and devastation caused by the recent bushfires. 

Together, these leaders stood in unity to pay their respects and thank firefighters, emergency services and volunteers for their dedication, bravery and service. Find out more about the meeting at the Multifaith gathering page
