Funding for faith charities listed online

An organisation created to link government and faith-based charities has launched a networking website to publicise government funding opportunities.

FaithAction unveiled its FaithBook site at its first conference, which was attended by more than 250 charity executives in London yesterday. The conference included presentations from government departments about funding opportunities and examples of best practice from across the sector.

Keynote speaker Stephen Timms, the minister for employment and welfare reform, said: “Faith-based organisations with government contracts can deliver them not only to a high standard, but to the highest standard. I hope that will be the norm.”

FaithAction has been funded by the Cabinet Office to be a bridge between government and the faith sector. It is designed to help charities access funds, deliver contracts and develop effective partnerships.
