Building Back Better: The Role of Faith
This microsite will act as the hub through which this conversation will continue. Featuring articles, interviews, reports and the conference videos from a variety of faith leaders, politicians, academics and practitioners, the Building Back Better site brings together a variety of different perspectives, which may or may not agree with each other, but which all aim to shine a light on the role faith plays in society today and the ways in which faith communities ought to be included in the rebuild.
Friendly Places: Mental Health
There’s no health without mental health. There is a significant and positive role for faith communities to play in the support of those with mental health problems – both within their own congregations and in the wider community. This stems from the position of faith groups as places of community, of meaning, and of connection.
See the previous campaigns we've run here at FaithAction, including our Faith Manifesto featuring seven key principals aimed at forging closer links between government and faith groups, and Faith Too Significant To Ignore, which culminated in a national conference highlighting the contribution that faith makes across the country.
