What’s Faith Got To Do With It?
FaithAction’s National Co-ordinator Felicity Smith has written a guest piece for the Corporate Alliance against Domestic Violence, as part of the 16 Days of Action, a campaign against domestic violence.
At FaithAction, we believe that faith is often the first place people turn to when in need. This could be because they are new to the area, have existing relationships or they simply cannot get an appointment with their local public service. If people aren’t in need, chances are they will still have some interaction with a faith centre. The Cinnamon Network Faith Action Audits estimated the amount of people who benefit from a faith based organisation or centre each year is 47,823,751, the same as the population of Spain. Therefore, the role for faith leaders in addressing domestic abuse is often invaluable.
