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

Birmingham City Council and local faith groups are the first in the UK to sign the Faith Covenant

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.

The Faith Covenant has been developed by the APPG on Faith and Society as a tool to facilitate partnership working between local authorities and faith groups. It is a joint commitment between faith communities and local authorities to a set of principles for working together, which aims to build trust and promote open, practical engagement on all levels.
