Birmingham City Council and local faith groups are the first in the UK to sign the Faith Covenant

Birmingham City Council is the first local authority to respond to a call from the All Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Faith and Society for all local authorities across the UK to sign a newly developed ‘Faith Covenant’. The City Council and faith group representatives signed the Covenant at a public launch held at the Library of Birmingham on Thursday 11th December 2014.

The Faith Covenant has been developed by the APPG on Faith and Society as a tool to facilitate partnership working between local authorities and faith groups. It is a joint commitment between faith communities and local authorities to a set of principles for working together, which aims to build trust and promote open, practical engagement on all levels.
