Social Responsibility

A recent survey showed that Anglican churches are highly engaged in responding to social issues and building community across England with 70% running three or more activities to benefit their community.

It highlights the huge amount of informal help and signposting that churches provide with the vast majority of churches involved in supporting people with problems from mental health challenges to loneliness and family breakdown.
Here in Leicestershire, many of our churches and schools run regular activities or one-off projects that show their faith lived out in everyday action, caring and serving people in need in their communities.

We have established The Leicester Diocesan Social Responsibility policy and operate a Panel for Social Responsibility, covering the areas listed on the Panel document which you can download below.
The Panel is chaired by the Archdeacon of Leicester, Richard Worsfold, and we have a Social Responsibility Enabler for the Diocese and Cathedral, Alison Adams. Individual panel
members hold briefs for different specialist areas, which you can see on the Panel document below.
