Let's talk with faith groups

Closed 1 Jul 2018

Opened 1 Mar 2018


Southwark is the proud host of several hundred faith groups in the borough. People of faith come from all walks of life and are very diverse.  In support of our Fairer Future Promises, we wish to develop a plan to guide a new relationship between faith groups, the council and the wider community and voluntary groups.

Before we can begin to develop a plan, we need to know more about the many and varied faith groups that work in the borough. To help us develop this knowledge we would like you to answer the survey questions and help us to understand the following:

  • How faith groups are already working with each other, the council and community organisations
  • More about your worshippers and the work you do to support your community
  • What are some of the barriers to working with others
  • What relationships you would like to have with the council, other faith organisations and community groups
  • What would be your priorities for working together

We’re keen to hear from people in leadership positions of faith groups.  This can include trustees and paid or unpaid members of staff (e.g. Parochial church council members, Elders, Imams, spiritual teachers, directors, officers and other recognised workers) from religious and faith-driven community groups.    

As we're keen to hear from as many faith groups as possible, please pass on this link: www.southwark.gov.uk/faith-groups to such groups and encourage them to respond.

The closing date for telling us is 31st May 2018.    

If you would rather tell us by talking to us directly please contact us at: community.engagement@southwark.gov.uk     

What Happens Next

We will give feeback on this website and at a public meeting in the summer 2018. 

Please don't forget to leave your contact details with us, so we can keep in touch with you.
