Priceless, Unmeasurable? Report

Priceless, Unmeasureable begins by establishing the link between faith-based organisations and community development; that the values of each are very similar. It goes further to show what faith communities do with regards to community development, as well as how their focus is spread across the spectrum. There is also a comparison between different regions, for example; in the Yorkshire and the Humber area almost half (48%) of projects are geared towards children, young people and families. This report also outlines what members of faiths feel they need in order to flourish, with better co-ordination between faiths and working effectively with the media being just two examples of a plethora of recommendations.
