Conforti Institute: Overview
Conforti Institute, named after our founder, is the European Dialogue Centre of the Xaverian Missionaries; A global catholic Organisation working in the areas of Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue. Conforti Institute exists to promote integral liberation, by exploring local and global connection, through Interreligious; intercultural; Intra-religious and Ecumenical dialogue.
Our organisation has an international commitment to priortise work with people and groups on the margins and those working in solidarity with the marginalised. In the contemporary Scottish and European context we are committed to facilitating and participating in inclusive dialogue with and between people of all faith traditions; those without religious faith and beliefs and those who consider themselves spiritual but not religious.
The global dimension and commitment in our work is reflected in the depth of our team’s experience of working in International Development contexts and work at home and abroad. To nurture this commitment we are an active member of the IDEAS network in Scotland.

Big Lottery Fund awarded Conforti Institute the sum of £9,821 from their Awards for All programme to undertake our Global Garden project. The funds were used to redevelop the garden area at the centre to allow us to carry out some of our activities outside, particularly when we are working with school groups, and provide those who use the centre with a lovely space to relax when they visit. We are very grateful to Big Lottery Fund for their support.
