The major political parties recognise the importance of faith as a vital element in British society. This has always been the case for the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, who understood the importance of faith as a motivator for the Big Society in 2010.

This Monday, the 10th of June 2024, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer addressed an open letter to all faith leaders, which outlined how a Labour government would seek greater engagement with faith communities and empower faith-based social actions.

Of particular note are pledges to introduce a Minister to lead on faith engagement and to promote local faith covenants between Local Authorities and faith groups—two key policies that we have been championing in partnership with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Faith and Society since 2014.

This greater engagement with the faith sector also closely aligns with what we’ve been hearing from you in our What Matters to You? surveys far—you can check out the most recent results here!
