Research and Policy

Back To Top

Church Urban Fund's Research and Policy Team works to build evidence and analysis on key social issues and responses to them. Engaging with themes including social integration, homelessness, civil society, and financial inclusion, this includes:

Research: building an evidence base about church-related social engagement across England

Resources: strengthening local social action by sharing learning, providing data, and supporting theological reflection on practice

Impact: making sure that the impact and extent of our projects and programme is robustly and appropriately evaluated

Policy: influencing public debate and social policy on issues affecting the people and communities in which we work.
