This report forms part of a wider pan-European research project on Faith-Based Organisations and Exclusion in European Cities (FACIT) funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. Researchers from seven European countries are addressing a common research agenda to investigate the role of Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) in tackling different forms of social exclusion in urban contexts, and are focusing on a number of significant questions. How are FBOs positioned in combating social exclusion and promoting social cohesion? How has this role changed over time? What are the implications of FBO involvement for policy and governance in different nations? The first task of the research teams has been to undertake a mapping of the involvement of national-level FBOs in tackling social exclusion. In this report we present the findings of that mapping exercise for the UK.
