You can follow your religion whilst being in care. If you have been brought up in a religion, and it is important to you, your social worker should help you in making sure you can follow your religious beliefs.

This may include:
• Going to a particular place of worship
• Going to special classes for religious instruction
• Going to a particular school
• Eating, or not eating, certain foods
• Wearing your traditional dress, rather than western clothes
• Not having your hair cut

Ask your carer or social worker to support you in this.  Below are some local churches:

Wakefield Central Mosque – Sanderson Street, Wakefield WF1 4PE

Wakefield Cathedral, Cathedral Centre, Westmoreland St WF1 1PJ

Jamia Masjid Swafia, Park hill lane, Wakefield WF1 4NJ
