The Forgiveness Project

The Forgiveness Project is a UK based charity that uses storytelling to explore how ideas around forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict resolution can be used to impact positively on people’s lives.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    The Forgiveness Project is a charitable organisation that explores forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict resolution through real-life human experience.
    We use stories, and in particular our powerful exhibition The F Word, to open up a dialogue and promote understanding. Many of those whose voices are celebrated in the exhibition and on the website, also share their stories in person. We work in prisons, schools, faith communities, and with any group who want to explore the nature of forgiveness, whether in the wider political context or within their own lives.

  • Aims

    The Forgiveness Project aims to:

    • Education – encourage and empower people to explore the nature of forgiveness and alternatives to conflict.
    • Transformation – engage civil society, as well as transform hearts and minds.
    • Awareness – raise the debate by collecting and sharing personal stories and images.
