#FaithinPartnership Week

11th – 15th September

See what happened during our week celebrating and championing cross-sector working!

The Faith Covenant (For councils)

A primer for anyone interested in the Faith Covenant, a set of principles for joint working between faith communities and local authorities. It contains case studies, top tips, core principles, and first steps on the journey to signing.

The Faith Covenant, developed by the APPG for Faith and Society, is designed to facilitate partnership and understanding between faith communities and local authorities. It’s a set of principles for joint working to which both parties can mutually agree.

This document is a primer for anyone (whether in a local authority or a faith organisation) interested in the Faith Covenant. It contains case studies, top tips, core principles, and first steps on the journey to signing.

24 local authorities have now signed up to the Covenant, and we’ve seen some excellent examples of strategic projects and initiatives sitting underneath these agreements – especially during the pandemic. Could the next Covenant signatory area be yours?
