The Christian faith was integral to Sir Vincent Fairfax; his faith underpinned his character, providing purpose, a robust ethical framework and his basis of care for others. He was actively involved in the Anglican Church throughout his life.
Honouring his beliefs, VFFF supports the work of Christian organisations, with a focus on young people. Our goal is to help young people make life choices informed by an understanding of Christian faith and belief.
