Three new reports on partnership working between faith and local government.

The Prime Minister supports A Year of Service and Mitzvah Day

Speaking in support of A Year of Service, Prime Minister David Cameron said,

“Mitzvah Day is a fantastic example of people coming together for the good of their community which is why last year I was pleased to present them with a Big Society Award. I was really impressed by their results with projects all around the country benefiting from the support of volunteers who gave up 50,000 hours of their time.

“This year Mitzvah day is forming part of A Year of Service highlighting the many community initiatives put on by people of all faiths. This great idea is joining together communities right across the UK with over 160 events taking place this year and I would encourage anyone who can to get involved.”
