17 years of working in East London: Why we do what we do

Seventeen ‘troubled’ sixteen year olds, eight tents, three Mentors and me…in Wales…in the middle of British summertime. It was cold and very, very wet.

Keeping our feet dirty – a local charity with a national reach

When FaithAction, under the umbrella of LifeLine Projects, first started they did a survey of network members (now totalling 2400). One comment that was important to them was ‘we have never met the team in person, but we feel they speak for us.’ It’s very important to FaithAction to meet those who they represent, but more than that, it’s important that they can express their opinions: and that’s because they are similar, they do the same stuff in the same places – their feet are dirty – just as the feet of their members.

For over 10 years now LifeLine Projects in Barking and Dagenham have been the umbrella organisation who host this national network. With a mission to support the work of faith and community organisations, FaithAction works directly with a number of Government departments, runs an All-Party Parliamentary Group (in parliament) with MPs and Peers and delivers services, support and contracts throughout the country.
