Faith in Public Service


‘Big Society’ has not delivered the transformation in civil society for which many hoped. Our inaugural report, Faith in Public Service, outlines some of the reasons why the bold vision of Big Society has yet to be achieved, before going on to set out a number of key policy recommendations through which we believe the Big Society project can be re-imagined and reinvigorated. 

Faith in Public Service also explores the huge potential for the Church to engage more deeply in the development of a stronger civil society. It outlines some of the barriers that exist to that engagement and recommends specific actions, on the part of central and local government and the Church, which would enable individual congregations and groups of churches to play a more active role in public service delivery.
