Detail

This guidance deals with some common myths for local government on working with faith groups and is intended to deal with current confusion about these arrangements.

At times there has been a reluctance or confusion on the part of some local authorities to commission services from faith-based groups and there are concerns among many groups and organisations, including faith groups, that they are disadvantaged when trying to access funding. Greater clarity is needed if local authorities and faith groups are going to have confidence they need to work together.
