A partnership with The Nehemiah Foundation has been in place since 2012 to support the growth of a faith-inspired response to poverty and injustice based partly on the Royds self-sustaining model. We have acted as tutor for four local workers in Bradford, Oldham and Burnley supporting their personal development and their promotion of local activity, programmes and partnerships. Funded through the Government as part of the Near Neighbour programme, 37 projects have been developed by the workers locally.
