The Social Justice Programme seeks to inspire and support parishes and the whole Diocese as together we respond to the needs of local communities and the wider world.
The king will answer them, ‘Truly, I tell you, just as you did it to the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’

Social Justice Programme 2013
In response to the consultation, Christians in the Community; Challenging Injustice and Need, a small group has worked to develop a programme that includes project ideas that can be replicated in local settings as well as supporting wider campaigns for justice.
In 2013 we will be promoting work that will:
Build a network of local Social Justice Champions to encourage local action
Develop Read Easy groups to assist adults in becoming confident readers, building on the success of groups in Dorchester and Bridport. www.readeasy.org.uk
Support the Cathedral’s plans for the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta in 2015 by extending the reach of mentoring schemes for ex-offenders. www.footprintsproject.co.uk
The Social Justice Programme also encompasses our continuing work that includes care for the environment, international development, addressing poverty issues, inclusion, racial justice, Gypsies and Travellers, urban priority areas, rural affairs, and links to government at local and national levels.
The Social Justice Programme is supported by Colin Brady working as the Social Justice Programme Manager and by the Social Justice Working Group. Email Colin via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
