Take an in-depth look at the issues facing the world's most vulnerable communities with our latest research reports and publications.
Faith and charity
The purpose of this unique white paper study is to provide an update on the relationship and interconnections between faith and charity within UK communities. The UK is broadly viewed as a highly secular society, with 53% of the British public describing themselves as having ‘no religion’ according to a survey by British Social Attitudes, 2018. For various cultural and historical reasons, Britain is nevertheless a highly diverse country encompassing many different ethnicities, nationalities and religions. In recent decades, the influx of religious diversity has reshaped the makeup of many communities, particularly in city regions, setting in motion wider societal trends that link faith, charity and community in the UK.
Attitudes towards charitable causes are strongly felt in Britain, especially given the sharpening of the cost-of-living crisis in the country - a major concern for many of our respondents who are exceptionally worried about the economic impact on their own finances, regardless of any professed faith. This research investigates the country’s modern perceptions of charity, as well as shedding an important light on the interplay between claimed religious belief and charitable donation, both now and in the future.Download
