What role does faith have in creating a good society?
Good Society project
An exploration of different people, places and projects across the UK, and the values and faith they share.
Good Society toolkit
Following the launch of the Good Society project on 21 May 2014, we are now looking for communities around the four nations to add their own voice and answer the question: 'What does a Good Society mean to you?'
To help we have produced a toolkit that can be used by local groups to undertake their own Good Society research:

Project report and website
The Good Society project has given a voice to different communities across the UK by asking the question 'what does a good society mean to you?'
Through a participatory research process, church and faith-based groups were asked to tell their own story in their own words.
What has emerged has been informative and enlightening, with much unheralded work illustrating how care and community building is taking place around the UK.
The results are presented in the report, available to download below, and also the Good Society website which includes many more inspirational stories, videos and photos.
