Department for Social Responsibility

Web site: (click!)  and follow Department links to Social Responsibility

The Department for Social Responsibility advises the Bishop, Diocese and Parishes on matters of social policy and supports local church projects and practice. We manage a number of services linked to specific areas of work: Health & well-being; children, young people and family support; work economy & business; criminal justice and resettlement; care and support of the elderly; social cohesion; refugees and Interfaith. These arise out of engagement with community issues across the Diocese’s geographical area, working in collaboration and partnership with other public agencies and community groups. We work with all people regardless of their faith and none.

Diocesan Council for Social Responsibility (CSR)

Web Site: Click to visit their home page!

CSR runs a number of social programmes mainly at parish or diocesan level, in South East Hampshire, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.

CSR seeks to encourage engagement, impact and leadership in the community. In recent years, it has been switching its emphasis towards a more socially enterprising approach. We seek to help Anglican churches re-think their aims, vision and purpose by looking at innovative and inspirational new ways of engaging people in local communities that are meaningful and sustainable with our rapid development programme (rdp). We also host the Good Neighbours Network (www.goodneighbours.org.uk) which supports about 4,000 volunteers across Hampshire in 123 independent local groups with simple neighbourly help such as driving people to GP or hospital appointments, shopping, befriending or DIY. We also work with others, including the Kaospilots School in Denmark, on creative leadership approaches and build new skills.
