Event description

Description

The majority of the churches we work with feel under-equipped to respond to the needs of their local health services, including addressing general health and wellbeing issues, mental health problems, social isolation and loneliness.

Cinnamon has therefore identified the need to produce a piece of Faith Action Research which examines best practice models for church-led partnerships focused on delivering health and well-being outcomes for local communities. The findings of this research could then be used to broker partnerships between the church and health services, nationally, regionally and locally.

Following the successful model of our Police & Church Partnership Working research, in Phase One, Cinnamon will produce a full piece of academic research and a 16-page summary report. It is the summary report, outlining key findings and actionable guidance for both local churches and health partners, that will be most widely distributed, including at a national launch event attended by health sector leaders, social action projects, and church leaders.

The research will have three key outcomes:

• Increasing the confidence of health services to partner with local churches, by evidencing the impact of church-based health and well-being projects;

• Increasing the confidence of local churches to respond to the health and well-being needs they see in their community, by highlighting best practice that can be replicated.

• Increasing innovation and inspiring churches to develop new church-based projects which respond to health and well-being needs of their communities that may not be currently addressed by Cinnamon’s Recognised Projects. These projects may have the potential to be replicated nationally, including through the Cinnamon Incubation programme.

In Phase Two, Cinnamon will take the findings of the research, and will seek to implement these nationally, regionally and locally.
