The Ebola Education team are now helping to deliver food and other essential supplies to Ebola-stricken families quarantined in their homes.As the number of infections continues to rise, they are looking to raise £20,000, which will go to the team and aid directly in providing support to over 230 people before Christmas.

APPG on Faith and Society’s Faith Covenant Launches

Birmingham City Council is the first local authority to respond to a call from the All Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Faith and Society for all local authorities across the UK to sign a newly developed ‘Faith Covenant’. The City Council and faith group representatives signed the Covenant at a public launch held at the Library of Birmingham on Thursday 11th December 2014.

Faith Too Significant To Ignore

We believe that faith is too significant to ignore and that it can reach places in communities that nothing else can. If you agree with us, we ask that you lend your support to our Faith Too Significant to Ignore campaign.

In November, we held our national conference in support of this campaign. More information on the event, plus photos from the day, are available here.

Friendly Places Pledge

Mental health problems are common and will affect 1 in 4 people in the UK during their lifetime. We believe that faith groups and communities play an important role in the support of mental health and they that can be places that welcome and support people with mental health issues.

If you agree with us, show your support by signing our Friendly Places pledge!

Faith Manifesto

Launched by Daniel Singleton at the ‘Faith Too Significant to Ignore’ Conference, FaithAction is putting together a Faith Manifesto which will take the ideas that you’ve been giving us through our #MyManifesto and ‘Faith Too Significant to Ignore’ campaigns, where you’ve been showing us what is important to faith groups and what you would like to see politicians commit to, and turn them into a set of proposals and challenges that you can use with politicians in your local area, as well as at a national level.

We want your views, so keep using the #MyManifesto hashtag, email us with your ideas, add your name to our ‘Faith Too Significant to Ignore’ wall and keep your eyes peeled on ways you can help us show why faith groups are too significant to ignore.
