How are faith communities responding to changing local needs?
Third Sector Research Centre and the Faith Based Regeneration Network UK are holding a workshop at the University of Birmingham on 30 June 2014.
These are controversial times for faith based organisations. From foodbanks to the prevention of violent extremism they are expected to play an increasingly important role in the delivery of a wide range of Government policies – from responding to welfare reform, through to connecting diverse communities and the development of faith schools. Yet, despite this increased role, there has been little research into how faith groups are involved at the local level with communities, or effective interfaith work at a wider policy level.
