Online - Partnering with local authorities
@
Faith Action. While many faith-based organisations have strong links with their local councils, it is sometimes difficult to know where to begin the conversation. Good engagement with councils can lead to a greater awareness of local faith-based assets and also result in funding opportunities, consultation and greater involvement. COVID-19 has highlighted the need for local authorities to work alongside faith groups that have provided vital support and help for vulnerable communities – we would love to hear your experiences of this, good or bad. Come along to share your experiences and find how best to approach your local authority and build lasting relationships.
