Bringing about change We work through the Church of England’s network of over 12,000 parishes, which provides unique access deep into local communities, and alongside a wide range of other faithbased organisations, agencies and community groups. We work by building trust, empowering local people to have a go at addressing the areas of greatest need in their communities, and speaking out against injustice. We are committed to working through relational partnerships to bring about long-term, sustainable change. Our aim is to mobilise local people to be the source of the change they want to see, making use of the assets already available in their community. This report shows what we achieved in all aspects of our work during 2015.
