being heard by government

The main government department through which representatives of the churches can expect to make their views heard on public policy issues is Communities and Local Government link to external website.

In addition, churches and other faith bodies liaise bilaterally with civil servants in Communities and Local Government, or other government departments such as the Home Office, about a wide range of issues.

There are also other groups that meet to discuss issues relating to public policy from a faith perspective. The Radar meeting enables exchange of information among officers of the national churches and agencies actively engaged in public policy work relating to Westminster legislation.
