Churches across the UK are asking the question: how can we work well with our local authorities and other local agencies as our localities look to recover from Covid-19? Communities benefit when LAs and churches have strong working relationships. However, many churches find the world of local government difficult to navigate and get alongside. This toolkit shines some light on this world in simple terms, and offers practical advice to churches to enable them to strengthen their relationships with their local councils. We have also included case studies of where churches are working well locally – often in partnership with charity partners.
