CUF was established by the Church of England as a practical response to unmet need and has been active in local communities for over 30 years. Their vision is to see people and communities all over England flourish and enjoy life in all its fullness.
CUF works through the Church of England’s local parish networks, and alongside other faith-based and secular organisations, to bring about positive change in neighbourhoods.
One of the main ways in which CUF works locally is through the Together Network of Joint Ventures,
is one of these ventures.
Here is what CUF says about the partnership;
The Together Network is central to the work of CUF.
There is a great will and desire within churches across England to see their communities transformed. The Together Network is designed to extend the reach and impact of that work by providing a unique support system for churches and others to change lives and communities together across England
The Together Network is made up of 21 Joint Ventures, each a partnership between CUF and a Church of England diocese. Each of these partnerships employs a development worker who brings expertise and support to churches and others to bring about positive change in their communities.
