Faith groups praised for work in supporting local needs


In a letter to faith leaders across the city centre of Portsmouth, Stephen Morgan, Labour’s ward campaigner for Charles Dickens recognises the value of faith groups in civil society. 

In the letter, being delivered to faith organisations and places of worship this week Stephen writes:

“I believe faith-based organisations have a huge role to play in the life of this great city by addressing need at local level; delivering important services to marginalised and isolated groups; working together with others in the voluntary and community sector to build cohesion and celebrate diversity; and; speaking out on current issues and campaigning for the common good.”

Engagement with faith groups follows successful contact with local business leaders recognising their work in enhancing economic wellbeing across the city’s communities.
Stephen adds: 

“I look forward to working with you for the benefit of residents across our part of Portsmouth”.
