We are talking to leaders in various parts of the UK. As local campaigns become definite, each one will have it’s own page here, found alphabetically in the drop-down menu and also directly by a unique email address – www.as-one.uk/yourtown.
Dudley Borough, with a large network of faith organisations and the local authority anchoring an extensive partnership, is leading the way and due to launch its initiative shortly. Nine other local authority areas are gathering a partnership in order to take part, with another 20 or so areas not far behind, and a further dozen seriously considering it.
In each area, the initiative will have the benefit of being locally-driven, harnessing local creativity and energy and creating a unique identity, but with access to national media and a much bigger impact on social media.
We are also working with national bodies, to communicate the vision ‘down the chain’ to those they represent in their individual localities.
