At the Sandford St Martin Trust we believe that broadcasters have a key role to play when it comes to the public understanding and tolerance of difference. In an increasingly multi-cultural, multi-faith and complex world, broadcasting – because of its reach – can be at the forefront of helping us understand other people’s perspectives, their values and how these inform how they react and respond to the world around them and the decisions they make. If there is one theme that unites this year’s finalists it is “representation”. All the finalists for this year’s awards have contributed in their own way to helping us recognise and appreciate others and deserve celebration with particular kudos to this year’s winners.

JOIN OUR COMMUNITY
At the Sandford St Martin Trust we’re interested in how religion and belief are portrayed in the broadcast media. We believe that faith – whether you have it or not – plays a complex role in human experience and that a better understanding of what people believe can support stronger secular communities. Think that sounds interesting? Why not sign up for our newsletter and join us at one of our forthcoming events aimed at stimulating and contributing to the debate around what is good religious content.
We look forward to meeting you!
