On 4th July 2023, the APPG on Faith and Society hosted its eighth Faith Covenant Forum, a virtual roundtable discussion providing an opportunity for faith and local authority representative from Covenant areas to hear about interesting topics relevant to them and share learning and best practice.
This forum meeting was chaired by Daniel Singleton, National Executive Director of FaithAction, the secretariat to the APPG. We heard from Matthew Allen and Jeremy Simmons from FaithAction about the new Bloom Report, an independent review on how government engages with faith, offering reflections from the FaithAction team on the report and it’s findings. We also heard reflections from both members of faith communities and local authority representatives from across the Faith Covenant areas. Matthew also launched FaithinPartnership Week 2023, announcing FaithAction’s intentions to hold a Faith Covenant Forum Live event during the week of 11th-15th September 2023.
