Within the website section you will find details of projects which we run centrally and the support and networks that we open up to parishes and Deaneries in the Diocese. We also operate Together Lancashire – a joint venture of CUF, the Diocese and Lancashire Methodist District.
There are three major Diocesan based projects: one working in the Criminal Justice area – working with those who have received Conditional Cautions, providing support and mentoring to them; the second providing both supported and supervised Child Contact sessions for separated and divorced parents, and providing Information Programmes for separating parents; the third major project uses a redundant church building as a family and support centre.
The groupings cover a wide spectrum from Racial Justice and Cohesion to World Development, from Ecology and environment to inclusion and disability issues. The list is not to be considered fixed – it is a fluid list which responds to situations as they arise.
The introduction of Together Lancashire into the mix means that we can now support many other smaller church groups to develop the work that they are doing in the area of Social Justice.
